They say sticks and stones,
May break my bones
but words will never hurt me.
Words cut deeper than sticks ever could.
They say attitude gets you no where,
yet the people who bicker,
are the same ones,
who get all that they want.
They say memories last a lifetime,
but really day by day they fade.
And happy days seem so long ago,
until you can't remember.
These are the lies they tell us.
The lies that we believe naive as it may be.
It is easier to imagine this world that they teach us.
Than the truths we really see.
