They Lied To Us

They Lied To Us

A Poem by JP142000

We grow up being told that we can be whatever we want
They lied to us
Maybe they didn't mean to
Maybe they were only trying to help
But now I'm sitting here lost 
Confused on what to do with myself 

Because I was told I could be the President
But that is very unlikely 
I was told I could be a movie star 
But Hollywood doesn't prefer my face
They told me I could change the world 
But I would have to have made a compelling case for a cause worthy of the world 
And I simply don't have that case 

I have come to a conclusion 
A rather shocking kind
The kind of conclusion that hurts so bad that you know its the truth 
And that gives you some piece of mind 

I believe they simply super-sized the truth
See me and you can be wonderful far beyond our youth 
But maybe we weren't men't to change the world
Maybe that's not God's plan 
Maybe the truth is...
WE ARE ONLY SUPPOSE TO CHANGE OUR WORLD

Our bubble 
Our personal universe
Maybe we are only suppose to change the lives of the people around us  
Be a light in a dark world

Or maybe they just lied to us...
