reckless (my generation)

my generation is careful
with secrets and food
and other people’s lives
we’re only ever
reckless with ourselves

pill bottles
and broken records
contraband liquor
and blades on skin
will write our bad stories
and our worse endings

and celebrities
and counselors
and adults
tell me to stay strong
and i don’t know how to stay strong
when there was never
any strength to begin with
