I've been listening to Carrie Underwood's song "There's a place for us." It gets me every time.
Each time I see me with my lps'ers, being myself in a world where teenagers like me live and laugh and no one is there to set rules, and we can go anywhere in the world; you know, a perfect earth.
Where all the Littlest Pet Shops are there, and they talk, they aren't just talking through imagination.
That place is where I can be the little girl I am in my heart, where no one laughs at me and cuts that judging knife through my soul, where there are no shadows, no rich girls, no pushing, no hitting, no fighting, no bullying. Where lowly, less-than-a-someone kind of girls like me are loved and appreciated!
We are made for so much more!
We can be the kings and queens of anything if we believe! It's written in the stars that shine above!
A world where you and I belong, where faith and love will keep us strong.
Exactly who we are is just enough!
Because...there IS a place for us! Somewhere...in a fantasy we can love and hope on.
