*~*Why should she change*~*

An outcast
Banished from the crowd
Holds her head
High and proud.

Mistrust and fear
In her heart
Loss has played
A crucial part.

No life to live
No will to go on
In this big world
She's just a pawn.

It's not her fault they call her different
It's not her fault they think she's strange
She is beautiful
Why should she change?

Why? She asks
Every night
Why do they torture?
Why can't she fight?

Why can't she stand
And be strong
Show them all
They are wrong.

It's not her fault they call her different
It's not her fault they think she's strange
She is beautiful
Why should she change?

Someday, she knows
Everyone will see
You can't always be
Who you want to be.

Someday, she keeps
Telling herself
The world will be full
Of kindness and wealth.

Someday she won't
Live in fear
She'll never shed
Another tear.
