Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time

Innocence existed

Love caused clarity

Kindness was a personal trait

Magic fulflled our everyday desires

And knights in shining armor slayed dragons

However, this past is all but a fantasy.


Immorality exists

Love causes confusion

Kindess is a temporary emotion

Money fulfills our everyday desires

And knights in shining armors slay eachother

The manipulation of life being handed to you has overcome the American Dream and society

Because in reality

Behind the curtain

I am the master of my own fate

I am captain of my own soul

And I make my own happy ending.
