fairy tale stories start with once upon a time
sometimes the story rhymes…
sometimes not. but one thing’s for sure
happily ever after is the future.
the maiden is a damsel in distress
who was once a princess
or an orphan who longs to be
swept away and just live happily.
she waits for her knight in shining armor
day dreaming with such love and fervor
while she sweeps and mops the floor
songs of love echoes through the door.
as she awaits for her beloved in a white stallion
she prays that her prince would come soon
at the back of her mind, she knows they live in a world
where she cleans the chimney and he eats in a plate of gold.
she sighed and wished as she stared at the moon
maybe he’d whisk her away, or dance with her
in the forest, in the castle, on the ballroom
just for one night… what would it be like if she wasnt her?
dream away… and so did she…. dream dream dream
glitters and sparkles filled up her room…
she opened her eyes and nothing is what it seems
half awake she saw light amidst the gloom.
fairy god mother.. little fairies with magic wands
magical colors are everywhere where she stands…
she knew there was hope that she could go to the ball
maybe meet the prince and head over heels, they’d fall
in love and live happily ever after all.
they waved their magic sticks and she began to transform
old clothes was replaced with a glittering dress
it was the most beautiful thing she had ever worn…
and now.. she truly felt like a real princess….
so she left in a magic carriage who talks
how different is tonight from all her walks
butterflies in her tummy as she took off to the castle
its a beautiful sight.. even behind the tall concrete walls.
in the hallway she lifts her sparkling dress
walked daintily across the hallway to the dance
so this is what it feels like for a princess
i’m so lucky to have been given this chance….
and so she stood and covered her face with her mask
no one would know me… no one would ask
but the prince caught her eye across the room
her heart beat a little faster her head began to swoon.
to be continued.
