She was misunderstood
She was highly rated
Living a life of fame and glam
Living a life on Lane-fabulous
They expected so much from her
They all saw her as a gem
A stone too precious to be kept in a museum
A jewel on the move
Valued celeb
Gifted hands
Double-crowned royalty
But her life was not what she wanted
She was just too overrated
She was young
But her youth was slipping away from her
The price was fame
And the buyer...the public
She was having regrets
Freedom was so far from her
Wealth was her tenant
Vanity was her lifestyle
Love was in the theater
Every speech was rehearsed
Every date was screened
Every occasion was glam-rated
It was getting too artificial for her
Her life was becoming an illusion
She was sniffing too much of the luxury hills
She was getting too intoxicated with this life
She used to be an innocent damsel from a humble home
There was once a farm
And everything had a limit
But that was Once upon a time
Once in her birth town
Now she was choking in the city
Bright lights were blinding her
She was sick of it all
She knew it was time
It was her only chance
And she took it!
