"How vain is it to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live?" - Henry David Thoreau

I see the heartbreak in your eyes
For you’ve been left without a choice
Behind your intricate disguise
I hear the longing in your voice

There is no ready compromise
This beast conceived cannot be tamed
I see the anguish in your eyes
But this is not a playground game

I have no use for childish lies
I want nothing but the truth
So sing your angry lullabies
And relish in undying youth
