"burn your tiaras,
bury your fairy godmother.
it's time for you to grow up now, you're
no peter pan.
forget never never land.

stars are just burning balls of gas that are
slowly running out of time- they can't
hear your wishes.

cast aside your dr. seuss books like you will
later cast aside your bibles.
after all, a fairy tale is a fairytale is a fairytale.
life will teach you that.

grace, you were born into a role
only a very strong girl can play.
see, society will hate you for being
what they don't want to believe.

surrender your throne, your castle is under siege.

stop being fascinated with the sky,
you'll never go there.
keep your feet on the ground, and steady yourself
before you help another.

your brain is more logical than your heart,
therefore take your instructions from it.
promises can be broken as easily as can be made.
do not rely on something as weak as miracles and love-
and if you only have one piece of armor,
defend your back from the people you trust the most.

and grace?
if some one ever, ever tries to tell you
you're worth it,
they're lying through their teeth."

and that is the Goddamn Truth.
and i'm trying not to care.

i'm bbbaaacccckkkk. and i wrote this poem about how a mother will never tell you the things that you really need to know to survive in this world.

how it's time to grow up now.

All was great...except the line about the Bible being fantasy. Faved and unfaved....

 

but great poetry, either way.

^That, right there. Perfectly captured and hard hitting.
I'd tell you that made me cry but then I'd give away that I'm just an emotional mess today. Really though, that's f*cking perfect and gorgeous and it fits this piece beautifully.

cast aside your dr. seuss books like you will
later cast aside your bibles.
after all, a fairy tale is a fairytale is a fairytale.
life will teach you that.


And ^that. Geesh. Especially those last two lines, but the whole bit grabs at your limbs and beats you down. The Dr. Seuss book was especially brilliant.

see, society will hate you for being
what they don't want to believe.


^That is some kind of truth.

stop being fascinated with the sky,
you'll never go there.


^Yes! A sad truth that hurts to swallow. I know this one well.


I'm gonna stop quoting bits and pieces there, but really, this is a brilliant piece. And I'm going to continue to rebel against it because I'm stubborn like that. The truth hurts and I prefer self-torture, apparently.

Really great piece. :heart:

Reality is only a plaything of the mind. Truth does not exist. If mothers tried to preach it, it wouldn't work out very well. I don't think at least.

But dayum. Your stuff are good.

An excellent poem, truly. But a point of view that brings tears to my eyes. This is your truth I can see that, and it hurts me deeply.
