A river you're bound to be 
found in
The rope you're bound to be 
hanged in
The noose beckons you swinging
A blabe of malice slits your 

Store-bought attitude and spit
You're a just sugar-coated piece 
You're so unreal it's evident
A goddamn insult to the rest of 

You seek to be a rebel
But you just have greed
The pit of your being
Long lost and forgotten

You can tell the same lie a 
thousand more times
But it won't get anymore true
So close your eyes once more 
and once believe
That they all still believe in you

    Thanx for the kind words. I would appreciate a little help with the last two lines in the second last stanza. It sounded right in my head but writing it makes it feel kinda rushed and out of place. Regards, Johan.

    Very interesting. You adequately portray the feelings of teen angst and the informality within. I enjoyed this very much. Keep it up. Niko
