"Under twenty thousand tons of brick and stone,
She carries all the weight of her own world,
And somewhere deep inside, beneath the cartilage and bone,
Beats the battered heart of one little girl alone.
She is sweet like sugar, but she is bitter like the broken sugar pot,
Dad says that she could be anything she wants to be,
She only sees what she is not...
With her blanket of security
And the mighty force of her own will,
Treading water in her pink pajamas,
She is treading water still.
Hopelessly hopeless and she is swimming
Further into the sea,
Thinking she's substandard...."
---Brave Saint Saturn
Come away, O human child,
To the waters and the wild,
With a fairy hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping
Than you can understand.
