Grew up listening to fairy tales,
She envisaged reality to be the same.
Then came one day when her fantasy took a turn so hard.
Her dream came true,
she was finally dressed up as a “princess”,
White gown and a beautiful veil,
She thought she would live happily ever after!
little did she know she could no longer hear her own laughter.
And then she saw her Prince Charming,
“He has no hair, teeth broken and a humped back”, she thought to herself.
The prince didn’t live up to her expectations.
“I don’t want to marry him!”, She said angrily.
Sadly, it didn’t reach many ears.
Walking down the aisle, she resisted, but she was so weak, they could carry her.
Their grabby character managed to infect her.
And all that she anticipated as heaven,
She realised life is Not a fairy tale.
She was just seven.
