"We are the lost generation – we idolize risky behavior, the drugs, and skin to skin penetration. We look up to trendsetters and bow to idol Gods – we live by an unforeseen today and welcome all the odds.
We were raised by the leaders of yesterday but we seem to have an absent tomorrow – we live in a time where pain doesn’t equate to an uncertain sorrow. We are born free but enslave ourselves within the confines of our minds – our generation is surely one of a kind.
You only live once has become the justification for our uncalculated actions – with messed up morals we edit ourselves to fulfill society’s satisfaction. We are the lost generation.
We wear our tattoos like outfits and dream of being kings – the needles pass through our purity like a thousand bee-stings. We live life by no curfews and even kids are giving birth too. Where did we go wrong?
The Walter Sisulu’s, Chris Hani’s, Steve Biko’s and Govan Mbeki’s of our days are corrupted by currency – blinded by power they fail to see the situation before them currently. We are the lost generation yet still we possess the power to change a nation, when will we sow the seeds of change?
I am no longer prepared to sit back and watch the ideas of people who do not even live in our land destroy what our former leaders fought for and died, I am a man with my people’s best interests at heart and to save this generation I will swallow my pride.
We are the lost generation – and through our misdirection, we will lead ourselves to a rebirth or a much-needed regeneration.”
