Another year older
But am I wiser?
Truly, I am uncertain
Yet, I did not think to ask myself this last year

Goes away ever
Just hurts less eventually
Maybe even not at all
Sometimes you stop thinking about it
But it always comes back, doesn’t it?
Sometimes I think
Well, I think all the time…
At least I think I’m always thinking
What do you think?
I don’t think it really matters
Not what you think, but what anyone thinks
Everyone can think
So what makes what you think matter more than what I think?
Maybe no one should be thinking
Or maybe I’m thinking too much
I don’t really know.
What exactly is knowing anyway?
To know is to have learned.
To learn is to have been taught.
To have taught is to have thought.
To be able to teach is to have once wandered.
We’re the generation that hates waiting
Necessities include instant gratification
Including bank statements
Yet we still have no savings
Losing respect for older generations
They created hell on earth
Yet act like we’re Satanists
Sorry if we don’t give a fuck about religion
Caring means we’d have to pay attention
How when we can’t even paytuition
Wishing that our parents listened
Visionaries but they can’t see our visions
A better world is our only mission
Feminism so our women don’t just work in kitchens
Wear old shit and call it vintage
Trying to get our legacies cemented
Trayvon and Sandra are our Emmitts
Always worried about our image
Afraid of love so we stray from committment
Life comes fast we can’t waste one minute
Don’t preach to us about patience
Just go back and read the first sentence.
They could be a friendly and an enemy all in the same day
That’s because everybody loves but we don’t all love the same way
You could give them your last dollar but can’t find them when you need a place to stay
That’s because we all love but we don’t all love the same way
Your own family may disown you if you tell them that you’re gay
Love you, they may but we don’t all love the same way
They cheated on you right after saying “I love you, bae”
It’s not that they lied its just we don’t all love the same way
Pastors claims to save souls but only if the job will pay
That’s because even “Men of God” don’t love the same way
So remember that the next time you bow your head and pray
Does God really care? Because he “so loved the world” but we don’t all love the same way
