Changes

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

For all those born in the 1990’s, it definitely has no shortage of stereotypes. Generation Y are famously known as wild cards who carry major student debt all the while rejecting traditional nine-to-five jobs. From avocado toast to taking selfies, there’s a lot of things Gen Y is doing that baby boomer’s just don’t understand. Here’s everything you’ve ever needed to know about the generation that’s taking over the world.

Starbucks

A love-hate relationship for sure. This generation loves Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte’s just as much as they love to post selfies of their Pumpkin Spice Latte. But one thing the coffee giant can’t get right? Spelling our names correctly! Seriously, how can you mess up the name Jude? 

 

 

Reusable Bags

The current generation is paying attention to the environment and their eco-footprint. In the past recent years, they’ve been pushing for a ban on plastic bags and promoting the use of reusable shopping bags. 

 

Throw Back Thursday

Throwback Thursday is a trend anyone born in the 1990’s are masters of on social media. They take to Instagram or Twitter to post older photographs, oftentimes it’s from their childhood and always hilarious.

 

 

Whole Foods

Whole Foods Market is the holy mecca of our time. The food store’s emphasis on wellness and on-brand marketing checks off every box. Now that Amazon acquired them, it’s definitely the ’90s kid’s retailer of choice.

 

Cards Against Humanity

The hilarious party game in which players fill in the blanks using offensive and politically incorrect phrases. If you’re a millennial, you have played Cards Against Humanity and you loved every second of it.

 

 

Acting Like a Cheesy Tourist

Iconic landmarks like the Leaning Tower of Pisa just begs millennial’s to come to take Instagram pictures. The ’90s generation is pretty technologically savvy and can’t refuse a selfie. Of course, that means being typical tourists and taking classic cheesy pictures whenever the moment arises.
