As I

As I get older

My eyes get wider

I can see the world 

As its meant to be seen


The world is cold and dark

The new is bleak and stark


As I understand more

My hopes grow dim 

Shattered and broken 

by facts and men


I'm told my dreams are unrealistic

Broken up by "research" and statistics


But as I get older

And I see the flaws

And I grow bolder

Empowered by a generation

Who refuses to accept the worlds rules and its "natural" laws
