TRIGGER WARNING


One, two, three

That's how many times he hit me

He took a fist to the back of my neck

It only took me a few days to become a wreck

My family and friends told me I was insane

Because I loved a boy who brought me so much pain

I defended him despite it all,

Despite the major fall

The fall down the stairs where I broke bones

I wish I would have came home

I wish I wouldn't have moved in with him

Because he violated the most precious parts of my skin

The precious part where a baby could come out

I would never raise a child, no doubt

My eyes became black and blue,

My thoughts filled with thoughts of you

The concerned, beautiful boy who wanted the broken me

He just wanted to set me free

He took a bat to my abuser's head,

He just wanted him dead

Instead he got a bullet through the brain

Nothing could dull the pain

My abuser and I are now on the run

Maybe one day I'll see the sun

http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not.
