Teach Me the Truth


Teach me the truth

I don't want to know that y=mx+b

or E=mc squared

I want to know what I need for life 

I want to know how to pay bills

to manage a budget

I want the truth

know how to read my parents

not read Shakespears who happens to be dead

or other authors who don't know me from Eve

I want to be taught truth

I want to know what to say and when to say it

I want to know what life has to offer besides a test

that only proves I listen to the teacher

Teach me the truth 

Teach me the truth

Please just teach me the truth
