The State of Things

All the twenty-somethings I know are redefining what it is to be twenty-somethings.
There is no shiny job/home waiting after walking across the stage.
Receiving your Bachelors means debt.
Living with family after graduation is expected.
Everything has changed in these last 10 years. 
There is no American Dream.
A one paycheck family home back in the 1960's makes the equivalent to a two paycheck family home now. 
Are all seemingly disposable now. 
The increase of technology gives the false sense of security.
We have to fight for what we want.
Putting our feet in the ground and standing for what we want deserve. 

Some would say things are the same as they were in the past.
Babies are born to unprepared mothers.
People change.
Some people steal.
Older people are forgotten and then missed immensely.
Times change.
Some people kill.
Wars are fought for silly reasons.
New technologies increase communication.
People lose jobs.
Politics are hopeful on their best days and disgusting the next.

People change.
And it's staying current to the conscious of society that's tiring.
But, the one definite thought that has stayed the same, maybe said with different words is,
"Fuck it all."
