Words and myths and legends
You have been deceived
Lied about
Lied too
Mistake have been made
Fooled in all their tricks
That you are guilty
The one who has made the mistakes
Oh what a fool I feel right now!
They have cheated me
Mislead me, conned me, and fooled me
Oh those grown ups
Who think and believe what is best for me
But I cannot argue with them
They are my elders
They just do not like this
You and I all alone
If only, if only
They would be here all alone
See, watch
This is for real
This is no fantasy
This is reality
Here and now
My hand touching your nose
So wet and soft
You are sitting quietly
And gently
It is like you know
Dad taught me that word
I kept pestering him because he kept saying it
They have a lot to learn
For now this moment I shall treasure
Then mum and dad can come next time
Maybe we can work out a rhyme
So that they can find
What has been on my mind!
