i once was a dreamer

I once was a dreamer Meaning i once was young Feeling like the world was in the palm of my hands Nothing could ruin my well thought out plans I planned to be rich and have a beautiful wife Oh how i loved this thing called life Then i got to that age where i started to realise that beauty is not all that the world shows See the eye sees what the brain knows I did not know the evil this world beholds So i started seeing the evil in peoples souls Studied hard and got into a good school Expected my peers to be passionate, influential, outspoken great thinkers Oh how i was played the fool Aweful lectures, long hours, boring people but it was too late, the seeds were already laid So i started to regret the first big disicion ive ever made Unfortunately im not any jollier but i decided to suck it up Cant throw a temper tantrum if i cant drink from a silver cup Although experience has thought me not to follow something i dread I have to be patient & have hope, for hope is the reason we get out of bed Unrealisticly hopeful dispite being a pessimist, am i insane Well we humans were built to endure agonising pain On the cycle goes and another child is born My question is how do you expect them to prosper when the world has always left you torn
