I Hate What We've Become

By KitKapowski

                       She Became


                        He became


                        I became


                        We became


We became the pseudo-rebellion,


the CVS-black-lipstick-wearing


wannabe sinners, never-be saints


We became the book burners,


cigarette burners, joint burners,


school burners...flamers.


We became the hushed voices


that made your daughter cry at night,


that made your son commit suicide.


We became prescription bottle labels-


emotionally unstable.


We became the black sheep,


white sheep, herds of sheep,


the mindless masses.


We became Cain and Abel,


minus the Cain and add and un-


unable to lower our brutal clubs


that killed our own brother.


We became the ones that thought that


art was dead.


Who the hell are Mozart, Kafka, Shakespeare, Dali?


All lunatics with too much time and ink.


We became the ones that


made Gaga famous,


and bowed down to a rapper


named after a chocolate candy.


We became the ones


that lost our souls, a road diverged,


and we walked a thousand miles


in the wrong direction.


We became the ones that


are too late to say sorry.


We are the ones that hate ourselves...


for being too late to say sorry.
