She was the prom princess
Who traded heels for a sneaker,
She was a troubled seeker
Caught amidst unwanted pieces.
She is a rough rock
Found in a pebbled path,
That weird knee-high sock
Hanging beside a trendy hat.
Odd girl that’s what she is,
Stuck in a place she hadn’t planned,
This is the story of Alice
Who had never been to Wonderland.
She lives life struggling
For that thing her soul longs,
But why isn’t she standing
In the place where she truly belongs?
You might be asking who she is
Why is she carrying worn shoes in her hand
Have you ever heard of Alice
Who had never been to Wonderland?
She was book judged by cover,
Labeled trash by a stranger,
Alice, if I have to ask for a favor,
Love the person you see in the mirror.
