I am a victim of the sandwich generation

I am much too young to be old
And already much too old to be young
Too far gone to know where it was I once begun
yet so very lost to value the distance I may have traveled
I am a victim of the sandwich generation

I am caregiver though I remain a child in need of care
I am child yet a parent to children I hold so very dear
I am the echo now miles from shore
I am that emptiness within that beckons that distant call
I am a victim of the sandwich generation

I am in sight of wisdom yet too far from its vision
I have memories of laughter yet weighted down with sadness
I am the trumpet sounding early morning reveille
I am the solemn sounds of your military taps
I am a victim of the sandwich generation

Though I have walked through the valley of the shadow of life
I am often times lifeless in my waking hours of walking
My struggles far outnumber my solutions
and my solutions fall well short of your righteous indignations
I am a victim of the sandwich generation

I am without guilt yet swallowed I am in the rivers of filth
that follows the banks of the generational expectations
and the societal allegations the demonization of what I am to be
the Angels are weeping disappointed in what I will never be
I am a victim of the sandwich generation

At the end of another guilt free day I close my eyes and see
the wonders of the many things that will never become my reality
I bathe myself in the illusions of making my children my legacy
Giving onto them the many gifts of being all that you can be
selling them the very lies that were sold unto me
yet praying that just this once the truth will indeed set them free
of the endless vaccinations against the torrent of indoctrinations
while surgically removing their place of birth from their birthright
their colour from their innate power and their emancipation
from the powers that be no longer categorization into the multiple
generation “X” ,”Y” or “Z”
Because self education will be your only liberation from being
I am a victim of the sandwich generation
