when we had to go to school
now it's just an inconvenience
on way to office
there was a joy in puddles
now they just make the shoes dirty
the innocence is lost
the memories are a ghost
future was exciting when we were little
now there is only fear of future
and the tension that no one mentions
of the inevitable, coming fast
is this the life we had dreamed of?
is this all we really wanted?
where are those dreams now?
i want to strangle them to death.
