Hard being young these days (brain pollution)

It must be so hard

Being young these days,

So much information

Flooding in the brain,

Infecting them

Through news and social media,

Should I choose a side

Which battles should I fight,

Am I gay or am I straight

Is a question they must ask

Am I make or am I female

Or do I wear another mask,

This has got to be hard,

When I was young

There was no internet,

And no mobile phones,

And no social media

And I was not alone,

We embraced the great outdoors

And played lots of different games,

I think life was easier

And happier back in the day,

Now young people have to face

Information overloads,

Subjected to bullying and hate

From people they don’t even know,

We see racism growing exponentially

Trolling, death threats now are a common spectacle it seems,

I can’t help thinking maybe these discoveries were not so good,

I must be hard for young people

Who like, through history have been misunderstood

But at least there is a chance for young people to connect,

To unify and help each other and that’s the best

But I can’t help feeling, despite the host of positives

There is an insidious amount of stuff that is negative,

And the negative stuff sticks more I find

Than all the positives and likes,

It must be hard being young these days

Being forced to decide,

Stuff we let wash over us back in the day

And we didn’t have to suffer the pollution of the brain we see today.
