Touching back on alcoholism becoming such a prevalent factor in our teenage lives. We may not notice it until we have submersed ourselves in the culture of being a college student and wasting our livers away one shot at a time.
So far away but so close to the edge.
Some of us jump over, falling for the mechanism of Bacardi calling our names, Jack wanting to climb into bed, while beer batters our bellies.
The generation we live in is corrupted in my eyes, and only seems to be getting worse as time goes on. Babies are having babies, kids are beginning their attack and abuse on substances at an earlier age than ever before, 12-year-olds are getting tattoos, and teenagers are murdering. This generation itself seems to be self destructing, not even only through alcoholism itself.
We are so far away from what is the right thing to be doing, what is the right thing to be focusing on, what is the right thing to be learning. Yet we are so close to fitting in with the stupidity that grasps our generation in its kung-fu grip.
We have young men looking up to rappers, publicizing selling dope, carrying guns, and rapping about murdering. EVERYBODY WANTS TO BE A DOPE-BOY! Sex, Drugs, and Money is what our generation strives for.
Young women looking up to SLORES with money getting paid to fuck for a quick buck. Young females obsessing over being a “bad bitch” portraying themselves as sex symbols where big boobs and fat asses is what they think a “bad bitch” is. In reality, undermining females wanting to be bad bitches for lack of a better term: a bad female is an educated woman whose graduated high school and college, and has her own and is capable of taking care of herself. But we’re in the generation striving for Sex, Money, and Materialistic things without substance.
So we are so far away from being what is right, and so close to being whats wrong.
