    When she denied to speak
    what they wanted her to speak,
    they called her dumb.
    when she denied to hear
    to what they wanted her to hear
    they called her deaf.
    when she denied to see
    what they wanted her to see
    they called her blind.
    But she wasn't dumb or deaf or blind
    She was just numb to the pretensions
    And senseless imitations.
    She just wanted to see the world
    Without setting limitations
    And feel all of its wonders and blunders
    Without losing her originality
    Without getting influenced by others,
    She preferred to be a cactus
    In a garden of roses
    With her friendly spikes.
