I am known as “The Girl with the Pierced Eardrum”.
I have embraced my fame.
If you are the same, we all have everything to gain.
Come closer! Much closer! Do not fear!
I am here for you to see.
Can you not hear the beatings of my heart?
Listen to that which is inside me,
and you will know right away
we are, in fact, not that far apart.
