Gwen Araujo

Seventeen, a beauty queen
What was it like in your dreams?
When you stared up at the stars
What did you wish for?
What did you desire?

Oh my Lord, oh this life
It makes no sense sometimes
Some things just don't seem right

Seventeen, just a teen
Boy turns girl, what does it mean?
Be yourself, people like to say
But follow your heart, change your gender
Suffer their wrath and rage

Oh my Lord, oh this life
It makes no sense this time
This just can't be right

Gwen Araujo, beauty queen
Just a kid, a girl with dreams
Now you're gone, they took your life
Rest in peace, beauty queen
.........Good night.
