What We Thought We All Wanted

What We Thought We All Wanted

A Poem by Demii

We all want to grow up,
 but when we grow up eventually
 that reality we thought we saw, 
shows us up,
 slowly as we try to become something we are not,
 children and people we know sit alone drinking to get drunk, 
lying, having sex without a care, 
parents up all night calling you're friends who are unaware, 
but they're really just sitting there trying be calm, reality kicks in,
 your mind starts to scream, if your friends could only see your dreams,
 if the skies could only just redeem, if the positive's didn't break out the endlessness packages 
and seams, trying to keep everything in life balanced to somewhat remain the same, 
but the biggest regret we will have is not teaching our children to learn to love 
someone who want's their maiden name, 
to learn to love life until the day 
they will see love in its greatest flame

I see a big contrast between what young people thought they wanted, and what became of them. I can see the strong reality throughout the poem, and the longing for love and acceptance as well as a place to belong. "love in its greatest flame" comes along only with the right person.

Thanks so much for your feedback. :)
when reality comes it is usually a far cry from what we expected it to be...

maybe living in fantasy keeps that innocence alive.

we feel insulated from the bad stuff, and live like there is no tomorrow...but there is, eventually.
