  • Today’s inspiration comes from a very simple question asked by sally-okay:

    Knowledge or wealth?

    I’m not sure that I’ve answered “knowledge”, but I definitely said no to wealth…at least for the situation I imagined. I know that most girls in my life wish they were a Disney Princess. I’ve always thought that life didn’t seem as great as the movie’s make it out to be. My song shares my reasoning. Enjoy!

         A Princess problem

    Well, you were born
    with your nose in the air.
    Gifted pretty dresses
    and golden hair.
    But I know your secret,
    the one you’ve never told:
    You’d trade in all those dollars
    just to know:

    That you’re loved for being you,
    and not for your dowry;
    that you’re loved for being you,
    and not for your wealth.

    Suitors come to you,
    like moths to a flame.
    No, they come to you,
    like gamblers to a game.
    They want a taste
    from that silver spoon.
    The one that’s choked you
    and left you so blue.


    Well, yours is a Princess problem,
    one of the First World.
    But privilege can’t dull the pains
    of a sad girl.
    You’ve had everything
    except for the one thing you want:
    a good man
    that you can trust…
