Youth

Idle obsession
Superficial observation
Constant intoxication
Distracted conversation
Incessant manipulation
Fear of retaliation
Such is the youth of the nation
Who will bring about salvation?
From this unseemly emotion
Rebellious action
Only leads to more distraction
Fearful hesitation
To admit the fault
Of our own weakness
Tendency to overwhelm
Pain brought upon
Lust acted upon
Slut
Whore
Gay
Player
Broken hearts
Constant tension
Wasted lives
Useless talent
Haunted age
Insecurity
Affliction
Addiction
Loneliness
Idleness
Blurred reality
Clumsy interrogation
Such is the youth
Of the nation!
