Where fairy tales are made


Behind broken windows and tattered curtains,
under lots of pain and life uncertain,
with hungry stomach and empty utensils,
burnt books and stolen pencils,
Beneath leaking roofs on dripping beds,
through horrible history towards dark future ahead,
with broken dreams in black beaten eyes,
where dawn comes with death following stormy nights,
Under rotten skin, inside broken hearts,
where ugly patches are interpreted as an art,
among hooting ghosts and devils overstayed,
dancing naked feet on naked blades,
That is where the fairy tales are made
That is where the fairy tales are made.
