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.
