Overrated Sins - Poem by Lynnie Delony

Watch as the children crawl over the fence of gold
And you think of stories you haven’t yet told
Songs you haven’t yet heard
And verses you haven’t yet learned
Such a disdainful disgrace
To see us go at such a pace
Slowly awaiting the tales of hate
See how much we overate
Slowly praying for the promise of tomorrow
But all you ever find is a beautiful sorrow
Oh there’s beauty in out mental breakdowns
And there’s laughter in the never-ending shakedown
But still we breathe for her
Yes we breathe for her beauty
And the overrated works of sin.
