Unopened Parachute

A Poem By Carly Rosey

40
Unopened Parachute
Peels

The moment I laid eyes on you

I began to put on a harness.

I hoped to find something true,

But all I got was shiny varnish.


And eventually that began to stain my heart

Then the toxins sank in,

But I still couldn't part;

I had the feeling of desire within.


I tried to hold on really tight,

Then I thought the resistance released.

We began to both take flight,

But that was just a tease.


I took a chance and just jumped

Hoping I'd land there in your arms.

Maybe that would fix our slump,

And I'd land safely away from harm,


But your catch, well it never came,

And the parachute never opened.

All my efforts they were in vain.

Your love was not an earned token.


Our love was never to remain,

And I fell only to be broken.

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.
