the cynic

"Every generation has its flaws" is my opening quotation Among them is love and its absurd expectations Unjustly women are labeled materialistic with imperialistic views And guys don't give a s*** about the type of your lip stick we're not unrealistic tools Not always but increasingly the case So I respect anyone with ambition but still knows their place So who's to blame for making the middle class act bourgeoisie And why does no one find this disturbing but me Why do people find concepts like the American dream a goal to aspire That's what the elite say to keep people chasing ghosts to get what they desire You can call me a cynic for not believing that all people are essentially good Then why are we manipulated into getting what we should instead of what we could I wanted to talk about love so the above was to prove my point What ever happened to the days when love was not just a commodity We're the product of the TV. era So what happens when life and romantic movies don't mirror Love is not for the mentally aristocratic its for the conceptionaly pragmatic What I am simply trying to say is Genuine love seems like a myth to me nowadays
