I'm sorry to tell you,
But life isn't always filled with roses and sugarplum fairies.
The skies aren't always blue,
You will never see coming, the burdens life carries.
They say cats have nine lives,
But humans only have one.
We were all told this when we were five,
Back when we were all so clueless and dumb.
I'm not going to sugarcoat,
The dark and empty emotions.
I'm not going to sugarcoat the days where you struggle to stay afloat,
The days and nights that are filled with commotion.
There will come a day where you will run out of luck,
The days just keep on getting sadder.
To where you will one day become a sitting duck,
Walking under a black ladder.
