It doesn't matter who you are,
you can fake an image.
Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram,
there's not much truth in it.
Under achieving men and women,
admired as modern day heroes.
With thousands of likes online, while the time vested in their kids, zero.
Fatherhood was broken here,
Motherhood was exchanged for fame.
You ignored ever sign on the wall.
Quickly you accepted this game.
You placed that ball in their hands parent, along with that gun too.
Maybe the pages of education weighed to heavy, although you held tight to "I don't know what to do"..
Letting go of the excuses, No, there's never a compromise...
Been living that way for too long, finding comfort in the lies.
Fatherhood is broken...Motherhood was exchanged..
