This thing we call life, is messy and not at all easy.
I am a different person today than I was, you see?
So, why would I want to go back to yesterday?
We’re all mad here, and believe me when I say,
my thoughts are too deep for you to explore.
So, don’t try and follow me down the rabbit hole.
There are times I cannot sleep in this world of reality,
as I know that there is always time for a cup of tea.
Oh, how I long to run; run away from normal days.
But let me tell you a curious, little secret, if I may?
And listen closely: Those who don’t believe in magic,
will remain blind to what is not hidden, and never find it.
I hear you wonder how I have gone bonkers; completely mad.
No, my dear! My mind only went for a stroll, I’m happy to add.
So, please don’t tell me that I can’t – watch me rather while I can,
because I’m just another Alice –
trying to find a way out of my head, into the Wonderland.
