If you follow the crowd, you might get lost in it.


Back then I thought the world was nice,

I believed bad people always paid a price

Now I know that few are good,

I realize that almost no-one does what they should

Then was when I didn't know,

How fast evil spreads, how quickly it can grow

Now is when I finally see the truth,

It proves to be far different from the assumptions of my youth

This piece compares how I saw the world "then" (when I was younger) and "now" (as a teenager)
