Our Generation

Our Generation

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 succeded
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

  1. my generation has not fail… we are already making impact…. rethink your assumption

    Lol! This is really nice. I like the way it was written. Reading from below is the exact opposite. Good job.

  3. Aiit, iono if it’s because if haven’t seen this style used before or what, but man, this poem tripped me. I gotta try this some time. Nice one @oloye

  4. hmmm! this is real and holistic inversion of lines to possess meaning. Kudos dear, I highly cherish your creativity.

  5. @OLOYE. You really did a wonderful job with the reading from bottom to top, puts the poem in a whole new light. I love this.

  6. Woww amazing!!!

  7. I’m really impressed. This form of writing is only seen in names like ‘HANNAH’, something like that.
    I’d like to know exactly what it’s called… An Upside-down poem, perhaps?

    Great work and creativity here @oloye

  8. This is very nice; the reverse-reading with different meaning. I remember @sultan did something like this a while back.
