nothing is what it seems

I wish dreams came true
for those who deserve miracles.
I wish upon every star
that one day I wont have to hope
for a better life.
I pray that there was only happiness,
and pain only existed in nightmares,
and hate was gone,
and love bloomed 
as easily as a rose on a summers day.
But dreams are merely that,
dreams, and 
without the determination and perseverance
most people lack
they will forever remain figments of imagination.
and wishes are worthless 
without hope.
Hoping is a waste of time
if you are not going to try.
And happiness is sometimes only a dream
and the nightmare is the reality.
And hate is the most prominent 
and real emotion in human existence.
And love can be as fake 
as a smile of the heartbroken girl
trying to make it through the day.
And love can be 
as long living as the rose
given to the girl
when the boy has nothing more to say
