Don'T We All - Poem by Patrick Shields

Don't We All Wish That Life Was Perfect
Like A Fairytale Where Nothing Could Go Wrong
Don't We All Wish Are Heartbreak Could Be Fixed
Where Everyone Succeeds Not Just The Strong

We'll Life Is Not Perfect and Never Will It Be
There Are No Happy Endings Fairytales Are For Books
Heartbreak Does Not Just End Either You'll Most Likely End Up Like Me
Plus All That Matters In This World Are Looks

Don't We All Wish That Good Dreams Would Come True
That Mr. Or Mrs. Right Would Just Appear To Us
That Everyone Would End Up Happy Including You
So No One Would Have To Break Up and There Would Be No Fuss

But Life Is More Of A Nightmare Rather A Dream
Most Likely You'll Never Meet The Right Woman or Man
Men's Sanity Withering At The Seams
Life Will Never Deal You A Fair Hand

Don't We All Wish We Could Never Die
Never Have To Worry About Death At Are Door
Don't We All Wish We Could Never Again Lie
Never Have To Worry About Dying On Your Floor

Well Hate To Burst Your Bubble Kid But We All Die
That Part Of Us Shall Never Change
That Is Not Reason To Cry
All Your Good Deeds Will Be In Vain
