The New Me
I wanna be a Disney Princess.
Now don’t get me wrong I know I’m a real person with real issues,
which is probably why I'm sitting here alone, in the dark, crying
again because my heart feels like it is cracking in half.
Why? You ask.
Because this year has been FUCKED UP!

I am the Witch standing proudly in the fire with my head held high.

All this and a bag of rice cakes
(hey don’t tell me it’s supposed to be chips, chips taste good and

Yeah she probably has way more fun.
