I’ve now grown and I turned out alright But now I realize that this flow isn’t a smooth flight The scary things that I see is the reason I held to my seat so tight Here are the few things That made me hate this horrible ride the fact you realize that your parents are 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 laughter They told us stories and happily ever after, But just as soon Only that I realize 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.
