Dear Balloon, Please
of lost dreams
soar the sky,
let them know
and hear our
in their hearts
that we forgive them—
that we can start
make them feel
there is always

The Balloon Girl is one of the most iconic works of Banksy. The graffiti artist has created many variations for this but the one found on the wall of a stairway in the South Bank of London in 2002 is probably the most famous. In this work, a little girl is reaching for a red heart-shaped balloon and the words “there is always hope” are placed behind her.
Is she really reaching or releasing? Banksy does not answer this question. It must come from us.
