Out Of The Mouth’s Of Babes: 14-Year-Old Pens Deep Poem

March 4, 2014  |  

Get into this poem that’s been going viral over the past few weeks. Someone named Derek Nichols recently tweeted a poem written by his 14-year-old brother Jordan. Clearly, Jordan is quite the deep-thinker in his early teens. Jordan’s poem speaks volumes about how our kids are feeling these days about themselves and the world around them. Some kids actually realize that the future is in their hands, but they also need the guidance and support of us, the adults. Read on:

Here’s what the poem said:

Our generation will be known for nothing. Never will anybody say, We were the peak of mankind. That is wrong, the truth is Our generation was a failure. Thinking that We actually succeeded Is a waste. And we know Living only for money and power Is the way to go. Being loving, respectful, and kind Is a dumb thing to do. Forgetting about that time, Will not be easy, but we will try. Changing our world for the better Is something we never did. Giving up Was how we handled our problems. Working hard Was a joke. We knew that People thought we couldn’t come back That might be true, Unless we turn things around (Read from bottom to top now)

Reading from bottom to top, the poem reads:

Unless we turn things around That might be true, People thought we couldn’t come back We knew that Was a joke. Working hard Was how we handled our problems. Giving up Is something we never did. Changing our world for the better Will not be easy, but we will try. Forgetting about that time, Is a dumb thing to do. Being loving, respectful, and kind Is the way to go. Living only for money and power Is a waste. And we know We actually succeeded Thinking that Our generation was a failure. That is wrong, the truth is We were the peak of mankind. Never will anybody say, Our generation will be known for nothing.
