Upside Down Tutu
© Donna Dennihy 2013

My tutu was sewn on upside down
My tulle it went up when everyone's went down
But I didn't know 'til I read the back of the photo
Written by my mom to the woman who sewed it on, she wrote
You made my little girl look like a fool
You said you knew what you were doing with tulle
I want my money back and then she signed her name in black
And I read it again, I checked the picture and I saw it then

And in one second I was spun around
One moment a star, felt like I lost my crown
But now I know from seeing that photo
That I'm still a star and that tutu took me far
Now I always wear my tutu upside down
I wear it when I can, I wear it when I'm down I'm down
And when I feel like a fool I just slip on upside down tulle
I put on my crown and the real me I've found

My tutu has a message that's profound
Look in you closet or the closest lost and found
Find a tutu and wear it upside down
Like a smile from a frown

Take a bow and wear it 'til the end
Stay true to yourself never pretend
To be someone that you're not, give you your best shot
And put your self-conscious self on the meta self-awareness shelf
Say goodbye to fear of what you lack
Other people's perceptions should not hold you back
Throw out self-consciousness it's something you should try to repress
Look at those people out there With overactive egos and they don't care
