the lies They tell us

when were young
we were told to dream
that we could have anything

now we’re grown
still chasing that dream
and they’re tellin’ us to choose anything
because something
is better than nothing
and nothing will leave you with just that

tell me
who decided that adulthood means you’re too big to imagine
if you haven’t yet, then you’re a has been
if you haven’t started, then you can’t win
that it’s too late to begin

well, it’s a good thing
I don’t believe them

-E.E.
