Lost Morals

A princess in a ballroom
Is every girls dream
Playing it over in our heads, 
detailing the scene
A prince at our side
Determined to swoon 
Confessing your the most perfect 
one in the room
This is what's expected 
Until we grow up
And find our dream has decided to 
disrupt
Decided to change course
Causing more ache
Now we can't breathe without being 
plunged with a stake
Or being rejected
Our only other option
Forsaking the world or choosing 
adaption
Most choose the latter
Loosing there virtue
And cling instead on what guys 
believe are true

Like "You're  bangable that's for 
sure
But certainly not what I would date
For girls are nothing more than 
meat
An appetizer on our plate"

And instead of disagreeing with their 
fact
Setting out to prove it false
We believe these lies and comprise
Decide to be used up, then tossed
But at what cost?
Is it really so wrong?
Just following the pattern of 
american love songs
Craving to feel loved from this pitiful 
world
Just to follow and become an 
ordinary teenage girl

Now feeling alive and fresh in my 
skin
Not focused on how guilty I feel 
within
Could it really be sin?
But its so fun
Pursuing the guy till you find out 
you won
Until the job is done
And you watch him leave
Now aware you stitched your heart 
on your sleeve
And he's tore it off
Threw it in the dust
Tell me world, is this pain a must
Can it be fixed?
No it's too late
Might as give myself to the next 
heartbreak
Now i'm stuck in the cycle
Caught in the mold
But too scared to step out, not 
daring to be bold
Now my heart is cold
Thy soul is stone
Going from guy to guy yet feeling 
alone

Following the lie
This is the only type I catch
Besides, there's no such thing as a 
God destined match
Simple friend with benefits 
But no one benefits
Following the status quo
Just tell him no!

    When MORAL VALUES are reduced to ORAL FABLES the AURA is lost & d MORALS b'comes TERRIBLY FEEBLE it reduces one into a PEBBLE even if you are HUMBLE you still have to cross the HURDLE... Jessica it's such a great piece.

    I so much agree with this piece. I have three girls and one of them chose to go with worldy ways as your poem writes. She is the most miserable living in sin. My other two girls chose to follow the Savior and when the time came fervently prayed each time a man wanted to date them and only when they felt approval allowed this man in their lives. When marriage became an issue they did the same. These two daughters are very happy and successful in the lives each day. I met my wife through prayer. I wish others could find faith to bring this happiness to their own lives.

    stick to the old rules and maybe you can convince someone that you'll follow the rules. that you won't break their heart. because their is a no tolerance rule for the guys. mess up one time and the spell is forever broken. and then they walk away. it's the code.

    Who ever said or thought society values are good. "Just tell him no!" That's the way to go. Love, daver

    Some tear the heart of the sleeve themselves, most men, never had one. Good piece
