Paradox

It’s funny,

People expect us to grow up

To be outspoken, outgoing

Speaking our minds

And expressing our feelings

When all they’ve done

Is tell us

Sit down

Shut up

The adults are talking.

We are told to question authority

While being taught to follow the rules blindly.

They say our ideas are the future

But our thoughts are

Patronised

Diminished

Shot in cold blood.

They want us to wake up

While tucking us into bed.

Who knows what will happen

Once this silent generation is allowed to speak.
