CINDERELLA

Inspired by Lauryn Hill’s “I got to find Peace of Mind”

 

See I know there is more to life outside these walls

I know more exist

Maybe somewhere over the rainbow

I could fly

If only I could make it outside these walls

But the voice in my head

Is saying I got to find peace of mind

The world is saying it’s impossible

But I know it’s possible

If only I could make it outside these walls

I’m undone because

All that I know is gone

That old me is left behind

My desire is pure

I am inspired to be the higher me

She is who I desire to be

The world says it’s not possible

But I know it’s possible

Every day is a new opportunity

I want to learn how to live

If only I could make it outside these walls

Sometimes I feel like I’m prisoner

But now I’m sober

I know where the wild things are

So I recognize the error of my ways

No longer blind to potential

Show me new possibilities

I want to go to higher heights

If only I could make it outside these walls

The world says it’s impossible

But I know it’s possible
