fairy tale

fairy tales of mischief and no consequences
a disaster waiting to happen
the frivolous acts
a condition of youth and inexperience
fairy tales aren’t real
the lesson everyone learns
no time can take away the wisdom gained
santa won’t bring the presents
the fairy can’t grant wishes
and no one’s able to rewrite the past
