I am the hollow woman

My merry mechanism failed

Left with so much opposition

from other's emotions that are stale

My normal state is empty

but my capacity half the world

I took on that responsibility

even as a little girl

Now my heart has been broken

I let a man fill me with his rage

but I got back up the strength

to free myself from his cage

The injuries I sustained 

were wounds turned scars

to remind me to never quit

never stop dreaming

when I look up at the stars

Dream of the warrioress

the one twirling in her dress

Dream of the mad scientist

trying better than her best

Dream of days to come

and the power you posess

Never stop dreaming

Don't even dream less
