If you want something you have never gotten, you will have to do something you have never done
Well behaved women seldom make history

she wishes she could fly 

she can fly

she waits for the sky to darken

and for the town to fall asleep

and then she stretches out her magnificent wings

with blue and green and purple and pink and yellow feathers

and she flies


she flies until she reatches morning

until she touches the stars and until she can smile at the moon

and when she lands in her majical forest

right before the sun kisses the sky with its brilliant glow

she has to hide her wings 

so no one will call her a monster

orsay she is inhuman

andshe runs back home

she runs back home just to wait for the night to return 

so she can fly away once more
