this world

The world is not a happy place.
They should stop lying
 to little children. 
They should stop trying to pretend.
They should stop trying to fit
into the complex puzzle they call

We are full of pain and misery.
Of burdens, we cannot share
With even our most intimate companions.

Full of mistakes and regrets.
Full to the brim, of sacrifices
and responsibilities.

This is no way to live. 
To live tied by expectations of others
Of the people we love
Of people we want to be.

Each life is special
Treat it that way
It doesnt last forever.
