This 14-Year-Old's Poem Just Blew My Mind. This Might Be The Most Important Poem Of The 21st Century

March 1, 2014

Dereck Nichols posted a picture on Twitter of a poem his 14 year-old brother wrote, who is clearly wise beyond his years.

Here is the full transcript:

Our generation will be known for nothing.

Never will anybody say,

We were the peak of mankind.

That is wrong, the truth is

Our generation was a failure.

Thinking that

We actually succeeded

Is a waste. And we know

Living only for money and power

Is the way to go.

Being loving, respectful, and kind

Is a dumb thing to do.

Forgetting about that time,

Will not be easy, but we will try.

Changing our world for the better

Is something we never did.

Giving up

Was how we handled our problems.

Working hard

Was a joke.

We knew that

People thought we couldn’t come back

That might be true,

Unless we turn things around

(Read from bottom to top now)

 

Sounds kind of depressing, right? Here comes the plot twist! (Poem Reversed)

I feel like I just watched Fight Club or The Sixth Sense for the first time.

It is important to note that this is not the first time a poem has been reversed. There is a similar concept here that may have inspired him to write this. Either way, this is brilliant work coming from the mind of a 14 year-old.
