Welcome To My Wonderland
by Alison Cohen
(Far Rockaway, New York)
My name is Alison Cohen, but I go by Alysin Wonderland because that's what I want to name my band. If I can ever get one. I've written over 860 songs so far, and I don't think I'll ever stop.
I wanna be just like the band Paramore, and that's all I want in life. I cry when I see an artist play live. That's what I'm living for. For the day when I can have thousands of people singing back to me the lyrics I wrote. The lyrics I wrote, that of which most are about my life.
I like to consider myself as psycho. But I'm not mentally unbalanced. I'm just different. Really different. And sometimes people treat me weird and call me weird. What they don't understand is that I know I'm weird and I'm proud. I like to stand out. I like to be myself. I'm not gonna change just so people will like and accept me.
I know my songs are gonna mean something people one day. I sit in school, sometimes doing work, but on another page, where the teacher can't see, I'm working on a song.
My mom is always telling me to get out of fantasy land. But I can't. I live in my mind because that's the only place I can live my dream. I live in my Wonderland.
My Wonderland is the place I go to to write songs. It's in my mind. And I go there all the time to get away from the real world which I don't like because I can't sing my heart out to it.
People are always putting me down saying I'll never make it. And those words hurt. If I can't make it, I don't wanna do anything else in life. People haven't always been there for me, but music has. I write a song every time someone says something hurtful to me.
I write songs about almost everything. I'm not saying they're all perfect. Some are very corny, and I will never release them, but they were just written to let something out so I'll feel better. I'd say 80 of my over 860 songs will never be good enough to release. But I don't usually write corny songs anymore, and I write a song nearly everyday. The most I've ever wrote in one day is 4.
I could try and say more like some beautiful phrases, to get you to try and help me, but if I haven't convinced you yet, I don't think I ever will. Thank you for taking your time to read this, and I hope you think about helping me.
