Favorite Quote:
You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep..because reality is finally better than your dreams. ~Dr. Seuss

We were promised leaders
You built and led astray
Told us we had no futures
Left our hope out to decay

Censoring our choices
Driven insight gone away
Left bitter, dark and cold
We have no choice but to obey

Our faith is being crushed
Because the hours never stay
We’re shouting for a longer one
To brighten up the day

Her design made her a fool
Chasing anyone who plays
His dreams were burned to cinders
Our hearts edges left to fray

Reminded of our cravings,
Those desired days in May
Watching memories slowly sink
Wishing landings in the bay

Wrapped up in the covers
Crying, broken we all lay
We all suffered heartless love

It’s our tears we have to pay

Laughing to our cores
So our pain won’t steal the way
We set the best examples
Of the fun you’ll never say

Sun, you should have warned us
Warmth intriguing, as the jays
Never were quite happy
In the absence of your rays

Unpleasant seeds of anger
Bitter, nasty tasting hay
They’re forced into our mouths
Like our hope left to decay

Kings and queens you built us to
We were promised, led astray
Crowning by our tribute
We will make it out okay
