Mis-guided missiles in disguise some of our young people are filled with deadly surprises...

A Lost Generation...Unable to find an identity that they are comfortable with.

A Lost Generation...That seems angry with self, with others, and with the way things are happening in many of their fragile lives...

A Lost Generation... That finds difficulty in getting along with each other, respecting one another, and allowing space between each other...

Angry, Moody, looking to challenge and be challenged everywhere they go...

Education, love of self, respect of parents continues to elude many of them .

A Lost Generation... Wannabe gangsters, Killers, Hustlers, at any cost is what they seek to become...

A Lost Generation... Always at war with self, against time, and against those who only want the best for them...

A Lost Generation... Doomed because of their inability to find a way to Listen to the Voices that are not against them...

Doomed to discover and mate with hardship while living on the edge...

A Lost Generation...Where young men and young ladies, mock education and ridicule those who want an education...

A Lost Generation...Where gun play is okay, even if you are twelve years old and out of control...

Someone better remind them that the Death Angel has no problem with them joining his club...

Remind them to stop waging war against Love, Trust, Family, and positive energy...

Yes, they seem so bitter and angry. Guidance is needed but they are not listening.

Great read.
