Seldom seen, soon forgotten.
Sometimes, late at night, when I cannot get to sleep I like to play around on my guitar. It's only when I'm really sleepy that I start to play something that catches my interest and then I begin trying to put words to it. Below is something I threw together, it's unfinished and unpolished. But the more I work on it the more I think that the message within the words is a pretty heavy and real one. Something that I feel most of my generation is facing. I'm 22 years old, I'll be 23 at the end of this year. And what I have wrote in this song(poem?) thus far contains some of my greatest worries at this time in my life. Something that I think the generations prior have not had to deal with, the difficulty of growing up in this economic state and how it is forcing the young adults of today's age into delaying the things that traditionally have been rights of passage into adulthood. Such as moving out of your parent's home, starting a family, starting a career, things such as this. I'd love to hear input from others that are a part of my generation and I figure the average age of a user at this forum would be a good match. Below is what I have written so far, I know it's probably rubbish and I have never written a thing in my life really, except shit songs with my friends. But, still, I'd like to hear what people think of it so far and what people think of the song's theme and if perhaps there is a better way to portray the message I am trying to get across:
Life is pretty scary
Can't afford to buy a home, afford to get married
In over your head before you ever take off
They say school gets you jobs but it costs so much
Can't afford to go to school so you go in debt
School will get you jobs, but it ain't happed yet
You thank your mom and dad 'cause they let you stay
You'll have to wait and grow-up another day
Part-time don't buy the gas that it takes to drive to work
It's like the dollar bill has lost all worth
There are no jobs at home so you have to move away
But you can't afford the move so you just have to stay.

Ok I think. Succinct summary of general monotony and how life can trap you.
