When Fairy Tales Lie

When fairytales lie
people get hurt.
little girls grow thinking that,
the princess gets the prince,
the good girl always falls for the good guy,
and the villain is always defeated.

Growing older their expectations turn into a twisted reality.
some people aren't meant to be,
the good guys are sometimes the ones that break your heart,
and sometimes the bad things in life destroy the light at the end of the tunnel.

Fairytales are just what they are said to be, stories,
stories that may or may not be true,
but for some people, its the best they've got.
sometimes you have to believe in fairytales to make sure the darkness doesn't snuff out the light.
