Oakland: The Girl, The Paper, and The Pencil

Once upon a time
There was no prince.

Once upon a time
There was no castle.

Once upon a time
There was no happily ever after.

There was only
A little girl,
A paper,
A pencil,
And her city.


Oakland is her prince.
Oakland is her castle.
Oakland is her happily ever after.

Oakland began her
Once upon a time.
