Generation X



Jaida Triblet
Young man, can’t you understand?
That there is much more to life than the shallow,
You scratch the surface of your potential,
Everything worth having is far below sea level.
Young man, can’t you understand?
That “getting money” isn’t the key to being successful?
That being the flyest doesn’t mean you will reach the highest of heights,
No matter how much weed you smoke, you will never get as high as you could be.
Young man, can’t you understand?
That is more to a woman than the diamond between her thighs?
That she has feelings and a mind, and would much rather be your wife, without the ‘y’,
Before she bears your child?
Young man, can’t you understand?
That the “bitches” and “ho’s” you run through are someone’s daughter?
Someone’s sister, someone’s something, so why does she deserve to be your nothing?
Young man, can’t you understand?
That your children are a reflection of you?
You are the role model for them that you never had.
Anyone father a child, it takes a real man to be a dad.
Young man, will you ever understand?
That you are so much more than the shallow,
Don’t scratch the surface of your existence,
Deep-sea dive into your being,
Only then will you become an old man who finally understands.
