She can because she thinks she can.

Oh clip-a-Dee-clop, clip-a-Dee-clop ho!
Up and down, left and right, which way to turn?
Around and around and around we go
We go so fast our muscles start to burn.

Oh can’t you see I’m lost within the storm?
How crazy life can be within a maze
Oh all my peers have gone back to their dorms
I wish to leave before I start a craze

I can’t get through, oh what to do?
Oh how have I been snared within a trap?
Which door to open is the one so true?
To try a secret knock, rat-a-tack-tap

Oh I’ve neared the end of the road. But where
Do the stairs lead up so high in the air there?

Here's my second sonnet. I was inspired to write this one when I was walking around one of the buildings at my school; going up and down the stairs and it just felt like a complete and total maze. I honestly got lost and didn't know how to get out.
