Hopes gone.

Thu, 07/11/2013 - 17:26 -- zdalton

On this night we survive

Just to wake up tomorrow

We have rules to which we abide

Yet it seems that they bring sorrow

We wake up lonely and cold

Then we venture out our door

We decide to be truly bold

And wish they we had something more

We go one living

Searching for that something

We try bending

Bending the truth, all for nothing

We sacrifice ourselves

For nothing more then a mere hope

We dream up a land of elves

And all we get told is nope

We get it all taken away

We lose our path

We go astray

I will let you do the math.
