We are the generation, Raised between those who grew in the world of the mighty tiger, whos legs could not support her. And the generation who will be free of its debt and wiser.
Choices made for stability and compliancy.
We live in a world off oddities, raised by nuclear families. To see single mothers and those who pretend to be. Young men classed two ways “a dead bet” or “he’ll grow into his potential you’ll see”
A generation of pill takers and weed smokers, a soceity with monsters in thier head. Who’ll pop Es but refuse the prozac. Cause the whispers that mental illness is weakness is burned into our minds by family from a different time.
A soceity of inequality, no bodily autonomy. Two woman travel across a sea keeping their faces a secret because of the chruch within their womb. Branded disgraces by a country who will watch a mother cry as a baby dies from foetal fatal abnormalities. “We’ll light a candle for ye” Nah. Keep your sacrament away from me.
Entry level jobs calling for two degrees. Five years experience. And a magic trick. See five years ago I was sitting exams. Told high points would show I wasn’t thick. Years spent in education to get the degree, to get the job, to get the mortgage, all to believe I’d see a day missing family, love and my son would be worth it to me ?!
What does it say when a man in a plastic bag makes more sense to me than a man we elected into a place of authority? Show boats filling seats in the Dail to represent us all, Drowning in their own futility.
I refuse to be, another pawn in your Catholic society. Your celtic tiger died and you turned blind to the homeless families and the children growing in poverty.
But sure lets open arms back to Bertie.
A world of zero hour contracts, No opportunities because of a lack of contacts.
Deny and lie, tell us we are progressive and changing, Do any of you notice the drug and alcohol problem wavering?
We freed love, and we’ve great education provided you were baptised into the right religion.
But who am I to question? No degree, no experience, minimum education and fallen flat of all expectation.
Another angry voice in this broken millennial generation.
