and we don't even know it.
we are being lied to,
that all that we have to do is believe,
and we too can be a winner,
but there are a few things that they neglected to tell us.
they didn't tell us about the heartache
the broken promises.
the broken hearts.
the lose of love,
or the love never found.
the quiet rooms.
the empty bed.
the meals taken alone.
the mind numbing sameness
of a job that you hate,
but you continue to go in
day after day
simply because it is what it expected.
we do what we do,
not to satisfy ourselves,
but because we have been lied to.
that this is the way that it is,
and that this will always be the way that it will be.
at least this is what we are being tolf.
