One girls poverty
Another girl’s playground
Trekking through the long winter’s snow
Carving angels in the snow

One girl’s poverty
Another girl’s playground
Watching mom struggle to keep up
Grabbing a bag to ease the load

One girl’s poverty
Another girl’s playground
Dreams lost in the dryer
Adventures made in laundry carts

One girl’s poverty
Another girl’s playground
Night’s spent crying
Night’s spent in warm clothes

What was my poverty
Became her playground
What was my tragedy
Became her motivation
With the Laundromat as her playground
