the world within me
Author: Ella

Chapter 57

i don't want to be a princess
all she hears are lies
hidden within a castle
always blue her clear skies

i don't want to be a princess
she never sees the horror
she never saw the poverty
the eyes of children with terror

i dont want to be a princess
she does not see the tears
of every crying child
the weeping of past years

i dont want to be a princess
she hasnt felt the pain
of being cast down by people
being caught in the rain

i dont want to be a princess
she doesnt know how it feels
to be broken hearted
and never knows how it heals

i dont want to be a princess
who thinks roses haven't a thorn
she hasnt pricked herself
for royalty was she born

i dont want to be a princess
to live a life so unreal
i dont want to be hidden
i want a chance to feel
