A Twentieth Century Girl Falls In Love.

Skin as pale as frosted glass

with a heart as cold.

Though you may be beautiful,

I cannot love you. 


For I love another.

Equally as beautiful.

With skin like the sun

and a heart as warm.


For he loves me as I love him

and no matter the colour of his skin,

I will always love him.

And so do you see now?

Money is not everything,

nor is race,

not even a pretty face.


Because love is everything 

it is everything to me.


- A Twentieth Century Girl (1960's)

"No", she replied, "but I have experienced it. "
