Cinderella taught me to never lose hope,
she said to be patient and love will soon show.
Rapunzel always chased her dreams
and Belle found beauty in the heart of a beast.
Mulan was impressively brave and strong
while Tiana achieved even if it seemed prolonged.
Ariel sacrificed for the one that she loved
and Snow White was positive when push came to shove.
Pocahontas stood up for what she believed,
Jasmine was herself and not someone’s trophy.
Aurora didn’t underestimate the power of a kiss,
they all taught me lessons that I reminisce.
Fascinated when I was a little girl
back then my hair laid in small little curls.
I wonder now why I can’t be like them
when all the stories had a happy end.
The glass slipper fits and the mermaids swim
it’s easy to find someone and be in love with them.
Singing songs for merriment,
living a life of cherishment.
“A dream is a wish your heart makes!”
Isn’t that what they all say?
The princesses lived a life of happiness and trust,
so what about the rest of us?
Park City, Utah

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel
