Childish Games
by: trista groulx

Let's be adults
Stop these childish games
Let's just stop
Let's just talk
Aren't we adults?
Isn't that what adults do?
Thy talk
Not shut down
They communicate
Not run away
Let's be adults
Stop these childish games
Let's try to talk
Use real words
No talking in circles
No more riddles
Real words
Real questions
Real answers
Let's be adults
Stop these childish games
There are still words
Words which should be spoken
Words which need to be real
Let's stop a moment
Stop hurting each other
Stop these childish games
And be adults
But we just won't
We'll keep talking in circles
Keep taking in riddles
Northing real
Nothing resolved
Nothing gained
Nothing earned
Just speak real words
No more riddles
No more lies
Just talk like adults
Like we never tried
