Jaded hope

The youth of today, so hopeful.

The elderly, so jaded by the realisation of just how much of life is bullshit.

The there are people like me, no longer young but not yet old. Still with glimmers of hope but jaded enough to know which are logical and which aren’t.

The funniest part of it all is the fact that knowing this changes nothing, so that being said, it’s better to live a ‘wasted’ life in the eyes of others if it’s a well lived one when seen in your own.
