Be the Queen

Today the future queen graduates

and tomorrow she packs up her things.

Then the next day she goes to the city,

then the next day she finds her first love,

then the next day she becomes a hero,

then the next day she loses it all.

Suddenly she’s got tears on her bed sheets.

Suddenly she’s struggling to pay rent.

Suddenly she’s the dirt they all walk on,

and she thinks all she can do is fall.

But the future queen grows to be stronger

and the future queen wipes off her skirt,

and she walks to the door of the office,

and she hands them her own resignation.

She kisses goodbye every lost lover.

She sends all her complaints to the sky,

and she walks down the streets of that city of fools…

and she rules.
