that is the future
we are "gen z"
we are flawed
spewing hurt and hate
we are collapsing upon ourselves
or a building without a base
we were put into a world
at a dramatic pace
we smile and laugh
but on the inside we are broken
attached to our screens
from what seems like birth
we try to find connections there
but all we find a loose threads
we are empty
we know helplessness like an old friend
because it is always there
we are told that
we are the smartest generation yet
but it doesn't feel like it
it feels like we are wandering blindly
through our lives, unable to make a change
why are we like this?
what has become of youthful innocence?
of teenage rebellion?
because all that remains is a broken base
