It’s a maddening world we live in

We’re told to pick a crown
So we choose our crowns
And then we are mocked
The colour, size and material
All laughed at

We’re taught to grow thorns
We’re taught to grow fangs and claws
But then we are judged
For becoming ugly
And afraid

It’s a maddening world we live in

We are given voices
Then told to shut up
We are given dreams
Then told they aren’t real
They laugh, they judge, they lie

Wear your crown
Even though they laugh

The way you survived
Isn’t ugly; it’s real

You must sing, you must write
You must dream and then not believe them

You must soften and tremble and unfold
