PROMPT: [Insert Age]

0
I feel again the gritty pain
That was the birth of my generation
Born with a howl
With a flow of foul words
With the scent of sweat and alcohol
Into a disturbed world of strobing light
Born knowing that these were the end times
But determined to take every scrap of life back
Not precious and pure but brutal and honest
We teetered on the brink
Unsure if we would live or sink
And yet out of that stink and darkness
Rise those who are always curious
Give me the meat of life and I will eat it
Right down to the bones, right into the virus
Until I can love it all and nothing hides it
But life glows bright to forever inspire us.
