just-a-clever-cookie Generation Z is TOO YOUNG you say i am too young too young to be a feminist too young to know my own sexuality too young to be depressed too young to hate too young to protest too young to be an activist too young too stupid too naive and you are right i am too young too young to be scared of bullets ricocheting through my school embedding themselves into my fellow classmates and having to watch as the life from my best friends once bright and hopeful eyes flickers out knowing i will never be able to apologies for that stupid fight we were having knowing i will never be able to laugh smile or talk with her again knowing i will never be able to hug her again knowing i will never be able to tell her i love her one last time too young to be scared of being raped by a man while i walk down the street in my school uniform because i can feel his eyes watching me and i should have waited for someone to walk with me i should have waited for jacky to have finished her test so we could walk together because now if something happens to me it's my fault but i just wanted to go home to get ahead on schoolwork too young to be scared of finding my friend dead in a sticky pool of her own crimson blood because slitting her wrists and watching the blood flow was better than living or finding her body cold and lifeless on the bathroom floor with candy colored pills scattered around her and stuffed down her throat because she'd rather go out in a loopy daze than try to withstand and fight the torment and i couldn't make it in time to stop her too young to be scared of seeing a familiar face on the news because jordan was black and looked older than his actual age and the white middle aged cop shot in self defense even though jordan was unarmed and innocent or because elias was muslim and was carrying a suspiscous bag and was shot and later died because the police officers thought he was a terrorist when elias just wanted to get home to his mom and little sister with a jewelry box to give them which now sits in peices on the concrete floor too young to be scared of finding my Igbt friends killled abandoned or sent off to a conversion camp because all they wanted was love and acceptance but instead they found hate and rejection because they were disgusting sinners who were just confus h and katy is finally back from camp but she doesn't even remember my damn name too young to be sobbing with such lose and grief over people so dear to me who were killed and died too young because no one would help them because all of their cries were fake because they were too young to know real pain too young to be scarred bruised bloody and beaten by a war i did not start or choose to fight in you say i am too young and you are not wrong i am too young too young for HOMOPHOBIA RACISM SEXISM RAPE SELF HARM SUICIDE GUN VIOLENCE and SCHOOL SHOOTINGS to be normal to me i should not be so desensitized by this violent reality so yes i am too young but you cannot blame me for my hyper awareness of our reality my generation was born with information at our fingertips and we have been told to sit still and be quiet because the adults were talking but you had your chance it is now our turn to speak and our turn to fight because our rage is pure fire and with every ragged breath we take our lungs get more shredded by all of the hate and misery that is ingrained so deeply in our society you say we are too sensitive because we are hormonal teenagers who cannot control our emotions and therefore we cannot have opinions but you can no longer invalidate our claims as we yell for change because the DEATH of our classmates and the BLOOD of our friends has paved the path for this revolution your generation may have won battles but my generation will be the one to win the Sitch It! War my generation will be the one to instill change and bring peace because we grew up in a hating world spiraling into darkness and death and dying was never our biggest fear watching the world burn around us was expected but we fully intend to repair the damage you all have so carelessly done >>we are generation z and we will be the ones to rise from the ashes<< 33118 started 231 am finished 349 am Stitch It!
