Back straight, chin up

Smile bright and never cry

Heart closed, shields up

Stay safe and never try

Wear your armour of glass

And hope the storm will just pass

Because behind the glass I can cry

Exchange your wings

For marionette strings

Because it’s just too much effort to fly

Stolen wings leave scars

Glass armour breaks in shards

But in the end why do I even try?
