This is the new generation, my friends
Life has only touched us lightly.
The judging year
Has come too clear,
But this is the new generation.
This is the time to change our ways,
To put an end to foolish days.
This is the new generation my friends.
It’s our turn to take control.
This new world is up to us,
It’s now ours, and we treat it that way,
For if we don’t, it’ll be our price to pay.
The old generation has proven this,
But it’s up to us to change that.
This is the new generation, my friends,
And we, I know, will change that.
These horrid wars,          
Not glory, but gore
Has diverted attention from where it was needed.
And all the monsters they have bred,
But this is the new generation,
And we will leave them dead.
This is the beginning of a victorious time,
Our ways will not be forgotten.
For our journey will last a lifetime,
No more fresh achievements left rotten.
For this is the new generation,
And now a burning sensation.
This is the new generation,
And it’s our time to thrive,
This is the new generation,
And we will not be silenced, but alive.

This piece is inspired by what's going on in the world and how our parents have left the world for us. Most of us are blind to what's happening around us but we have to start being aware and proactive. Let our generation be the voice of change!
