They Never Told Us

They told us to face our fears

But they never told us that

fear was just a mask and the face hiding beneath it was failure

They told us to chase our dreams

But they never told us

why our dreams were running away from us

They told us that time flies

But they never told us that time has broken wings

They told us to fall inlove

But they never told us that love was a bottomless pit

They told us to take a leap of faith

But they never told us that faith was the fall

They told us to reach for the mountain top

But they never told us that

the peak was nothing but gray skies and fog

They told us to keep moving forward

But they never told us about the road ahead

They told us to live life to the fullest

But they never told us that

life was impossible to be filled

They told us about the goal

They told us about the prize

They told us about the finish line

But they never told us how terrifying the journey is

They told us all of these

But they never told us

about the ugly truth that lies beyond
