Mistaken Identities (reversible poem)

February 1, 2021

FREE WRITING

6
We're meant to stare at our screens
Don't ever say
We are more than our looks
And we have the power to overcome and lead,
Use empathy to view other perspectives, 
And we can turn our wildest dreams into true realities
Generation Z is who we are 
Lazy, reckless teens who are always being selfish
Just some privileged kids, making awful decisions
We are attached more to followers than friends
Stop with the lies, like
Society meant for us to be more
By the way 
There was a world before phones
Nowadays, devices are practically homes
Sure
There's a time and place for everything
You know
We can never be the salvagers and healers of our fragile world
Don't believe 

***now start from the bottom to the top (reverse it)***

    Oooh I really like this, reversible poems are extremely hard but you did it really well and the message is just really well put. This line "And we can turn our wildest dreams into true realities" I especially liked because it really is a lot easier for our generation than previous ones now with tech so I really liked that you included that!
