A metaphor for the loss of innocence in this crazy age.
Magic No More
People these days
All have their aims;
Money or fame,
It’s one thing or another
And gone are the days
Filled with such wonders,
Filled with such things
You would barely believe.

Magic and spells,
Fairies and dragons,
Phoenixes singing from
High up above you
With gryphons and gold,
Powerful wizards,
Mythical creatures
Abound everywhere you looked.
Gone are those fairytale things;
The world believes in magic no more.

When we were young,
We could believe
In some things greater
Than we could imagine but
We’re in an age
Ruled by our senses;
Fairytales just have
No place in our world.

We may have faith,
We may be happy,
We may have light
To fill our hearts and maybe we
Believe in love,
Believe in living,
Believe in miracles everywhere but we
Never found magic again;
The world believes in magic no more.

Until the end,
I still believe
In those most ancient days
When all the world was just
Freedom to find
Monsters and magic;
The quest was whatever you wanted to make of it.
Gone are those fairytale things,
The sprites, elves, and mystical kings,
For I believe that magic is no more.
