Sometimes I watch the falling rain
 And calculate the cost
Bestowed on me upon the day
 My Innocence was lost.

I ponder how I realized
 Not everyone plays fair,
Promises are rarely kept,
 And friends don't always care.

Believing doesn't make it true,
 Heartbreaking leaves a scar,
And how we're judged by how we look
 Instead of who we are.

Yet few regrets did I acquire
 By leaving its embrace―
For when my Innocence was lost,
 Discernment took its place.
