Fairytale Exposed

Somebody lied to me and told me that dreams came true
I wished upon a shooting star at every chance and never got anything new
I put my tooth under my pillow well guess the tooth fairy is not so generous
Wished under my breath as I blew off the candles on my birthday cake

If it was real then i would be;
Rich and married to prince charming
I would live in a castle with maids in waiting
I would not have to wake up early in the morning
Whoever lied to me was so cruel

Santa would give me anything I wanted cause I have always been a good girl
I would have a genie at my disposal
A well of wishes to satisfy my thirst
Everything I want and more
The world would be a perfect place

I was naive and crazy to believe
Now I am in the hottest pits of hell
When they had told me life is happily ever after
I have tried kissing the frogs to get my dream man I guess I have no such luck like Fiona

The world is a big happy family?
Barney was just after my parent's money
Now i open my eyes to see a sea of blood before me,backstabbing,segregation,discrimination roaming the earth
Whoever told me its all perfect was lying
Life is not a fairytale nor the world a haven but rather a place of melancholy....

    You've started of with one BOMB of a poem and I am ANTICIPATING reading more of your TRUTH! All of this hope sickening and uncertain and for people perpetuating fairytales in our youth and those seeking answers isn't doing ANYbody ANY good. I'm with you, Seabe <3
