I’ve now grown and I turned out alright But one day I came to realize That this was not a smooth flight And the scary things that I saw Is the reason why I held on to my seat so tight Now here are the few things That made me hate this horrible, terrible ride The fact once you realize that your parents are sometimes never right. To see that they are flawed beings, with broken wings and ****** mistakes. To realize the truths and the smiles they fake, Growing up to see only the image portrayed- was only for your sake. They hide the tears and shower us with laughters They told us joyful stories and happily ever afters, But just as soon as i grow Only now that I understand they were telling their own dreams, That had slipped right out their fingers So ask me what’s the saddest part growing up? To see the hollow sadness from the two people, who once i thought was happiest.
i never really knew how much things could effect parents, the slightest action i could now see their subtle response- i understand now. Its just the fire in them burning out, only dim enough for them to keep me going- so i don't burn out too.
