"Dream girl"

  Such a gleeful girl
     Fingers twirl in the breeze
     Playfully skipping in between trees
     About to have tea
     With her house guest, Mr. Bunny escorting Barbie
     Bursting out with laughter while laying atop a pile of leaves
     A tender age where fairytales are possibilities besides words turned on a page
     A pretty princess
     At last seasons pass, now a teen she dreams of being a beauty queen in the scene, on the cover of all the teen magazines
     But things change as months go by, the girl comes home to her parents in the middle of a fight
     Dads high
     So he put a whooping to her mama's backside
     She cries, screaming at daddy to "Stop that!" with all the combat
     Unfortunately he attacks her leaving the little lady praying to God he don't come back
     You see, the farther struck her down so much, she got comfortably numb from the pain that a few years down the line she turned around and found a guy who had his heart set on doing the same
     All the sudden she got a stage name, twerking for work, sliding down a pole to control the toll of each one of their habits they both hold
     And when she gets home.
     She checks the reflection of the mirror shown
     She stares, never aware
     That the dreams that came true were nothing less than her worst nightmares
