Sometimes I wonder if humanity is capable of new growth?
How come history keeps on repeating itself, restlessly, over and over again?
Have we learned nothing of suffering?
Of whole generations condemned to the simple act of dying?
Genocide is still at large and we act as if it ended with the fall of the Nazis.
But then, we ignore the existence of the Neo Nazis.
Blindfolded we are by the media and the government
who feed us the same empty promises.
Each holding the same flavor as the last...
And my generation, drowning in the apathy of facebook and twitter...
Apathy of themselves, the lost generation.
Did the passion of the 60s wear inspiration down?
How come we have allowed the fall of two giants scare us back to our little holes?
“I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together”
Remember?
Every poet, or amateur has to have a poem against the society's structured lies. This one is mine. 
If it seems similar I posted it in a past account in Deviantart, which I have deleted now.

This is very good. :)

I've had very similar thoughts lately. Humankind isn't always kind, and doesn't often learn from past generations. I plan to keep writing about it. If nothing else, this will help me to remember to constantly improve myself so that I don't also fail.

Wow, what kind words and yes it is very true, we humans choose to forgot, numb our thoughts of discomfort, and battle out our beliefs no matter how mistaken or rotten they can be. Why? Because that's the easiest way to approach life, how can we grow from that standpoint? It's like drying, squeezing the life out of something. The worse is what happens to generations like mine, if we can speak of our choice in music and the way we take photos. D: Ugh! You should write about it, history must not be forgotten! And wow, that's a lot of pressure to place in a few verses. ;)

Thanks, though it's short and may even be considered tedious, it was just a verse of raw emotion that poured all of it out. :D 
I like sounding poetic even in my comments. Sweating a little...

You have some great points made in this free verse poem you composed back in your past life as a different DeviantART username; however, I also see a bit of weakness in that next-to-last line. Other than that, this is a fine poem and I believe you have a lot to offer.

Thank you :) and I agree, I wasn't truly sure about how to wrap all the ends together. Though I desired to keep it simple, I wanted a final "boom!" a sort of line that would make the reader retain this poem in their mind. 

Hopefully, I have grown from then and can deliver a stronger finishing line. Sweating a little...

Yes, many a-times, but soon writer's block catches with me or it may just be my immature head that can't go through the pain and trouble of getting through it. I've started many times, but have barely made it past the first chapter!

Yep, I have a friend called Lauren from London who is asked to read and speak in class all the time, then the teacher makes everyone applaud for her! It's a real nuisance after she's been in school for a WHOLE semester! 

But yeah, I wish I had a London accent! And yes, I'm very happy indeed. :happybounce: :happybounce: :happybounce:

Nothing truer has ever been said and to be honest I think I like tea too much to be an American sometimes, hahaha xD some of my friends joke around and call me a traitor cause' I'm always like "lalalala" a cup of tea. 
And yes use it for the power of GOOOD! Don't worry, I barely passed music cause' I get really nervous when I record so my voice goes all pitchy and cracks. Just ew, ew! It's a nightmare.

ah yeah that confused me ever so slightly and i thought it might be giants but then i thought if i said giants and it was against then it would change the meaning...
Anyway congratulations!
