Into the future
Not too far
To the palaces of your dreams

No matter where they are

The ones who really love you
Will make your journey real
You’ll know because they’ll
Give to it
More than they will steal

Always be so cautious
But don’t befriend their fear
It makes for you the scene
On which your dream’s death
Will appear

Into the mirror
At your hero there
At what makes her beautiful
At what makes her fair

Don’t let others define for you
Your looks or
What to do
And go back to
The mirror

And listen
To who’s
