My Hopes, Memories and Dreams

This is NOT my Fairy Tale !

Where are you Prince Charming?
princessWhere did you go?
Once so gallant and true…
You slayed the dragon
You rescued the damsel
She handed you the power
to conquer your kingdom

Together you basked in the glow
of new beginnings
Great expectations…
Adorned in your armour,
You brandished your sword

For a time the Princess’ ambition
Outshone her reality
But as the pages turned
The castle walls began to crumble

No compromise, realistically possible
Loss, inevitable.
The Princess’ trust was severely tested
Sweet realisation…
This Urban Cinderalla would not have her ending

As she struggles to re-write the remaining chapters
Facing up to her life …
One like nothing she’d dreamt of
Now both Queen and King to her children
Never, ever did she imagine
Prince Charming would morph into the Beast.
