1. Childhood Lies
Although Santa Claus may be friendly,
the tooth fairy, little and nice.
You know, these are just fairy tales
Made up so you can sleep at night.
We think there are magical creatures
Who will go far to battle the bad.
It’s not true, just so you know,
fabricated by creative lads.
We all look up to these heroes
Superman, Spiderman and more.
But they don’t even exist out here
Who are we supposed to adore?
Rather than wishing to be a princess,
We would rather be taught about life.
More useful, more relevant and more helpful
To protect us from future strife.
Fairytales, children’s stories, the works
do not hold a single grain of truth.
I urge you to believe in yourself
not the adult’s lies that are used only to soothe.
2. Why Adults Are Sad
Our brains are slowly closing
as we grow older, I’m supposing.
Adults call it ‘maturity’,
but it’s really just obscurity.
Our imaginations, so wild as children
with princesses, heroes and villains
are sewn shut as we age and ‘mature.’
It must be a boring world for sure.
That’s why adults look so dim
and sad, and stressed and grim.
If they only let their minds wander
perhaps they would not be so somber.
