this future

my parents were young
when the future was exciting
when their lives and how they lived them
was a symbol of pride and promise

they worked hard
making things
getting things

I am young now
when the idea of the future is uncertain
and sad
when my life and how i live it
seems to be a menace

i also work hard
making things
getting things

but those things
we know now
become waste
in no time

and there is no pride or promise in this system
that me
and a bunch of others like me
need to change
