teenage fantasies

FREE WRITING

15
they say this generation’s too loud
say we’re a rebel crowd
say we’re made of snowflakes
brewing up a white haze

they say we’re too young
ask, “what have today’s youth done?”
wrapped up in a teen fantasy
hey, how’s social security?

well since you know
how it is to be a teen
don’t take us seriously
pleased to be, and courtesy, of Gen Z

teenage fantasies, you and i, they say
but we’re just trying to live
in a world that won’t give
us the time of day

so i guess we’re delinquents
we know that they think it
equality is our graffiti
give us death or give us liberty

and in a country that silences the teens
a so called democracy
one day, they’ll get to see what we can be
hindsight’s only twenty-twenty

(for our teenage fantasies)
-i’ve been writing a lot of songs to cope with my ap exams and this started off as my third one! i decided against continuing to write it as one though, so here it is
-“give me death or give me liberty” is a quote from the american revolution
-i finished 3 of my ap exams and i have 2 left next week. perhaps give me feedback as motivation?

    usually when poets stick to rhyme schemes, it is awkwardly done, which is why i tend to write free verse myself. however, this poem is so wonderfully written, and every word is perfect, well done!

    I love how you integrated Patrick Henry's quote into this! I agree with a lot of this poem; I've often felt that we are failing as a republic for how we treat teens (such as taxing them when they cannot even vote!)

    Replying: Thank you so much for your support! I was kinda vague on that piece on purpose, but it's not about culture (at least in that sense). Really, I'm just upset that my bat mitzvah was cancelled and am kinda dramatizing it :). Thanks again for showing your support! <3
