Fool’s Gold

You were better than the rest.

A shining test.

Never a pest.

You were the person of my dreams.

A wish from a hopeful stream.

We were a team.

It was based in lies.

I was fooled by fake ties.

Forget all of the cries.

Sometimes things must die.

To stop being it a stew.

To make room for the new.

For the honest few.



What happened?

To the dreams our youth?

To the time when we tried so hard to act so cool?

What happened?

To the endless days?

For the weekends that couldn’t wait?

What happened?

To conversation?

To all day play?

What happened?

To outdoor play?

And making the most of our days?

What happened?

To endless classes?

To a childhood that passes too fast?
