    'Regret' The cars they howl

    and the trucks they whistle As they pass my window That is half open I can’t see outside but I know what’s there The cool frosting air It reflects an image to my mind Of the stars way up high The bank of the motorway is lined with litter Blown about by the wind And these are...

    I want to be completely free... To think for an entire day about no one but me. To get lost in pink cotton candy clouds... To live my life boldly and out loud. I want to experience never-ending laughter... To find my happily-ever-after. To spin like Maria in a meadow so...
