I want to see a fairytale without a happy ending,

To tell me the facts and truth about the life we're living,

To tell me what happens sometimes in the face of adversity,

To show me that sometimes for a good guy, there is defeat,

And that the bad guys often win,

Play with your heart, your mind, takeover, and run for President,

So as a child I can learn ahead of time that the world is cold,

That the bravest of brave and the boldest of the bold,

Get scared too, and have no clue what to do,

I agree. There will always be hard times, and we try to put the idea of loss and grief on the back burner until it explodes. You wrote this poem very well and addressed this problem with a story.
