Love with open hands. - Madeleine L'Engle


Somewhere far away from here
There is another girl
Somewhere far away from here
In a very different world
She’s blonde and blue-eyed just like me
But she’s another girl
Perfect, glitzy and high-tech
Is her other world
No heartbreak, no unhappiness
For this other girl
No financial difficulties
In this other world
No stress and no bad feelings
For this other girl
No obstacles to dreams are there
In this other world
Why cannot I be the soul
That is that other girl?
Why must I live here instead
Of that other perfect world?
Why cannot I have the life
Of this carefree girl?
Why cannot I live in a place
Like her touch-screen world?
Why cannot I be as lucky
As the other girl?
Why cannot I take her place
In that well-run world?
Why cannot I have a place
In that perfect world?
Why must I stay right here
And be such an imperfect girl?
