Poem: Generation X

Generation X,

was known as

the most educated generation.

Their dreams,


and entrepreneurial spirit

left them


and unexplained.

The good old’ days

are long gone.

Generation Y and Z

are here to carry on.

With technology and a freer spirit,

they plot a point in the path

to the future.

Social Security is not a guarantee.

The Baby Boomers had it easy

and tried to give their children the world.

At times,

the world wasn’t so kind.


dreams don’t materialize

and reality can be discouraging.


no matter the generation,

we must

satisfy our passions,

make a decent living,

and find our purpose

in the world.
