We are the generation of the digital proletariat
working hard for every Like, comment, and LOL.
We aim for angles, Little slivers of things, anything to make us seem more or less than who we actually are.
We are the democratic the snowflakes the ones who hold hands and raise our phones to commemorate the wrongs we will no longer let pass.
We are the soldiers at war fighting, penning our 80 character’s, threading on our most social bird.
We are the ones who stare at seemingly white screens laughing internally and giving away nothing.
We are the web the trolls the memes and the vloggers our time is for the views for better or for worse.
We are the mindless and the valiente the hipsters the woke educators the tired jets.
We remember for as long as the world seems to care and once the next thing is up we take arms for our new affairs.
We are the hope filled, the loved, the gay, we are more than 1 and 0 colored in RGB.
We are the gamers the nerds and the thieves the ones who battle on our VR TV’s.
We are the new and we are the Grave. We will always be fighting and we will always be brave. We will always be connected and we will always know what’s up. We will never back down. We will never give up. We are the ones who will pen forever from our screens. We are the digital age. We will always fight for what’s ours. We will always be free.
