Here I lay, Speechless.
Air frozen in my lungs, Choking.
Emotions surge, Overwhelmed.
A noose caresses my neck, provoking.
Smashed at Breakfast,
Stoned by Noon,
Cried out the evening,
Nights are wild, dangerous,
Creeps are lurking, hungry for prey,
Concoctions passed around, unidentified,
Passed out in ditches, time forgotten the next day.
We are young in mind, dead inside,
Poisoned instead of in our prime,
Fueled by demons and pressured by each other.
Forgotten when we die.
Virginity is lost younger,
We cheat, fight and lie,
We lose respect from our elders,
Yet see this from our eyes.
Our parents are Alcoholics,
They complain about every bill,
They bitch and cuss after work,
Our holes in ourselves we just want to fill.
Don’t say we are a lost generation,
We are all lost, never been found,
We are like the last, and the one before,
A vicious cycle that keeps going ‘round.
