The poem by Kiersten L. titled “Disappointment” is about America and all the distractions we create that aren’t necessary. All of our obsessions make America look lazy and attention-seeking. We are, literally, a disappointment to previous generations. Kiersten’s poem is an eye-opener, and I hope more people will read it and realize that we are destroying innocent lives by not setting good examples.
