Really?

I

haven’t the heart to tell you
that this
is not the reality
we had dreamed of,

once

we had believed in delusions,
waiting,
quietly,
expectedly,
for the firm purposeness of adulthood
to transform hesitant tip-toes
into wide, obnoxious strides — fearless;
armed with self-conviction and direction.

but I instead find myself welcomed
into a world more confounding, feral and chaotic
than the millennials’ childhoods,
my childhood.

We
have grown weak-willed and entitled,
drunk on “Me!!!1!11!!!!!!!!” and luxuries;

— what a pity.

We were born damned;
suffocated by the fear of mistakes;
disenchanted by societal decay
bleeding money into ‘hol(e)y’ economies, educations
and dysfunctional relationships
held together by manic smiles and sad, wild eyes.

this.

This
is far
from the clarity I’d dreamed of as a child;

instead

I am left whispering:

“This?

Really?

This?

    1. Have we the audacity
      to seek a Tomorrow
      that exists beyond This?
      Yes, Kamus, yes :)

      I’d foolishly forgotten
      that we do,
      we Can,
      for as long as
      we choose to believe in the potential greatness of Now,

      (thank you for the reminder :) ).
