toys and imagination were all you knew

the only troubles faced were classified as few

a scrape on the knee, an uncovered achoo

who knew the burdens of life would interrupt you

 

watching cartoons on channel thirty-three

oh, how happy you were just before thirteen

“get your working papers now”, what has this come to?

who knew the burdens of life would interrupt you

 

although at that age, not many faced the truth

hidden behind safe doors, preserving their youth

the cards were dealt. Growing up, is what you had to do

who knew the burdens of life would interrupt you

 

broken down so young, what even is a break?

nothing ever handed to you, but stress on a silver plate

oh, how such a defeated young mind, begs for virtue

who knew the burdens of life would interrupt you

 

your lemons so sour, they were never up for trade

undertook what you drew, always made your lemonade

nineteen and standing, outlived your obstruction

perhaps you were ready for life’s interruption
