Generation Gap


When someone tells you what to do
and you once tell them no
When somebody is above you
You don't know where to go

Just remember we all are rotten
Just remember you're not alone
We all are unfixably broken
And none of us has stable home

We rebell and we stand up
There are thousands of our kind
Its just a generation gap
SO JUST POUR ANOTHER ROUND!

They were the same
they were once young
they needed the fame
they gave us punk

They gave us rock'n'roll
the children of flowers
they rocked us in our beds
spent with us hours

We rebell and we stand up
There are thousands of our kind
Its just a generation gap
SO JUST POUR ANOTHER ROUND!

We might be lonely
but we'll never be alone
cause we are the ones
with hearts as our home

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This one I wrote when I had some teenage issues with my parents about going out with friends and about them not trusting me enough, plus my friend had similar problems. It bothered me very much that I argue with my parents, but there was no other option. And everytime something bothers me, I write. So I wrote this poem/song...

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
