All Gone

Gone are the innocent days
and all the ever-trusting ways.
I've learned a lesson-
Giving your all rarely pays.

Gone is the naivete
and all that gullibility.
I've learned another lesson-
Too much goodness can be a liability.

Gone are those rose tinted glasses
and all the social falsity.
I've learned the hardest lesson of all-
There is no forever in reality.
