She was so little, so full of joy once
listened to bed time stories
With sparkle in her eyes
Of far of lands and a time long long ago
Full of mythic creatures and treasures
Magic and fairies, Princess and adventures
And she tried to be good as much as she could
Just like those fairies and mythic creatures
She dreamed of doing big things
Of big things happening to her
Once she grew up
And grow up she did
But couldn’t let go of the magic
The magic had poisoned her
Made her unfit for reality
She believed she was special
But she was not, she was just normal
Worse than normal
Because she believed all the lies
