They all lie
To our youth
To our next generation
They think itís for the best
And it is.

They say
The good guys always win
The bad guys take the fall

They say
Itís not what you look like
Itís what is inside that counts.

They say
If treat someone
How you want to be treated
You will be treated that way

They say
Good things happen
To good people

They say
If you work hard
You will be rewarded

They say
Money doesnít buy money
They arenít happy

Well,
The good guys have fallen,
The bad guys are winning.

If youíre ugly and nice,
People think youíre ugly.

If you treat someone nice,
Theyíll stab you in the back.

Bad things,
Happen to good people.

If you work hard,
You will be punished.

Money buys things,
Like food and a roof,
So yes it makes you happy.

They lie to the youth for a reason
If they knew the truth
They wouldnít
Have their youth
Properly
They would cry for the fallen
Instead of swinging on a swing set

They would have nightmares
Instead of dreams

They would never be truly happy
Because
Without
Childhood
There
Is
Barely
Any
Happiness

I understood what you meant, Madelyn. I  say those same things to myself often, even though I am not a teenager.

"They would cry for the fallen
Instead of swinging on a swing set" ~~ I love how you  wrote this.

There are some things we cannot control so we have to do the best we can for ourselves to have a happy life.
