Image for the poem Entitled


Take me back to the time
When she wanted me to go with her to the school dance
I was a bad kid so I got in-school suspension
Sweet talked the teacher into letting me go
Showed up late to find her dancing with someone else
Just hung out the rest of the day with my friends
As they blasted Offspring’s “Pretty fly” on the radio

It was good to live through my generation
Guess its all perspective but
Late 90s early 2000s is where I found my favorite songs
Wish I would have known it while it lasted
Still have my old blink records in the attic
Dust them off to play them till I feel like I did back then

Everyone has their own time
And sorry if you have your own opinion
But your opinion is wrong
Because I’ll bleed my heart out
To reminisce of the black parade tour
Shit head kids never understood
Emo wasn’t a band, it was a style
The music was wild and crazy
No one cared about anything but singing for the moment

It was good to live through my generation
Guess its all perspective but
It was cool to feel low, not taking it to serious
Pop punk was where it’s at
Not everyone was so hung up on titles
Living life was a piece of every word we spoke

Sum 41, New Found Glory
Eminem, Good Charlotte,
Yellowcard, The Used
Green Day was fucking awesome
To name a few

Never thought I would grow old
Guess I still have some growing to do
At least that’s what they say
But I still feel as young as I ever did
I was never hopeless, or killing myself
All because I had an outlet
In every song, I sung along
Taking all the things I learned
And applying them when I write
