They Tell Us Fairytales

Even if the scars fade
The pain remains

Even if the tears stop
The sadness lingers

Even if we all smile
The happiness is still absent

We might show symptoms of it
But it doesn't exist
They tell us it does
But it's to keep us docile

To keep us buying
What they tell us to

To keep believing
In their words
Their lies
That everything heals over time

But it never does

A wound remains open
Until it is sewn by comfort
We never receive

The blood never stops flowing
From the cuts we get
From the blade of society

And though our mouths show the smiles
They want to see
On the inside we are screaming
For everyone to hear

And we will not be silenced
