You Know This Story Too!

Salty tears.
Flowing down on cheeks.
Faces so young and adorable.

You know this story too!

Innocent are the minds confined.
Adopting the limits of ignorance.
And feeling helpless with no defense.

You know this story too!

Abandoned emotions cooling with age.
With a toughened exterior...
Becoming too late to save.

You know this story too!

I see in your eyes a connection with truth.
How did you manage to remain so brave?
How did you keep that crave for life alive?

You know this story too...
Don't you?

You know what it takes,
To shake away heartbreak.
And fake the existence of it!

You know this story too!
I can tell you do.
