Treasure Island

Enchanted


This is where the innocent hope to get exonerated.
Where the promises don't seem to live up to their words.

Kids still getting raised by only one parent guardian.
Disappointment is premediated.

Also where doing time is a figure of speech for spending the holidays in solitary.
The only gain worth achieving for is monetary.

The news only shows crimes and sad obituaries.
Truth is hard to see; lieing is easier than making an honest living.
Brothers are only willing to ball; Some deny giving education a chance.

No hope on the peoples' faces as they continue believing working hard seems not worth the minimal wages.
Childhood comes back when we make believe everything is just fine.
