I stayed up late and cried
Because I hate this world I live in.
As a child my grandmother would read me stories of
Wynken, Blynken’, and Nods,
Snow Whites and Cinderellas
But the story that stuck with me the most was that of Icarus,
Because he didn’t get a happy ending
And, if I’m honest,
That’s more like the world we live in.
See, their world is about good hearts, belief, and hard work.
As long as you have those,
You’d get your happily ever after.
But here, belief is about as powerful and real as those stories
Good hearts get trampled on
Hard work is only occasio
