Once upon a time....reality crept in

Once upon a time
There was a little girl
Her head was full of sparkle
A fairytale in a whirl

Then she grew up
And realised all her dreams
Had faded from sparkle
Disappearing from the scene

There were no princes
Or frogs beneath the stone
Her life was really empty
As she sat there all alone

How could grown ups
Turn out to be so awful
Brainwashing her to believe
Happiness and princes were plentiful

So she decided to write a story
About how it really is
So not to mislead the children
That happiness is bought with a kiss

The prince will be a pauper
The princess too
They both have to work hard
No jumping the queue

There will be cracks in the mirror
And they’ll have to be true to themselves
So that honesty and loyalty
Will prove be their wealth

If they can’t jump the hurdles
They won’t fall to the ground
They’ll crawl beneath them
Or just walk around

Not every corner
Will be full of pleasant surprise
Life will be challenging
But they’ll learn to survive

The moral of the story:
They’re just like
You and me

Once upon a time....reality crept in
