What they didn't tell her about Fairy tales

They told me from the time I was two
“One day prince charming is coming for you!”

They made me read these inspiring fairy tales
About mermaids, evil step mothers and 
servants whose childhoods were unfair,

They told me that even if I was troubled and had to put up with a lot,
That someday my adversaries would have to surrender
to me and scrub my pots,

They told me I wasn’t alone; animals would be my friend
So I tried that, then one night they bit me, 
I suffered another tragic end

They said to always be kind-hearted that’s what all man want,
When I got into high school I found out no one wanted to talk to the fat girl in the corner who ate chocolate glazed croissants 

They told me to find seven dwarfs, a crew of little people
My school only had four of them 
Their names were; scuba, geek freak, muffin top and meatball

In eleventh grade they said, "ask God for a fairy godmother to get a dress for the prom"
I went to a Catholic Church, got one for 75 cents, 
with red stripes and one missing arm

They said after graduation the wise thing to do would be to go to college 
and Not rush into getting married
So I got knocked up my senior year by the school janitor,
His name is "Prince Larry!"

I dropped out a month before school ended and you’ll never guess where I reside
I am currently employed doing Disney parties, where I get to dress up as all the great characters who told me those fabulous lies.
Got to Love fairy tales…

    Is this a true story, Sabina? Regardless, this is a sad write. Unfortunately fairy tales and reality rarely match up. Good write! Love, Kim

    Kim, its a true story for many people out there. They wait for some "prince" to save them from their troubles and end up making them even worse. There is only one king that was able to save me and we both know who I am refering too:) Take care, and glad you liked it!

    It was inspired by a friend of mine who use to tell me how fairy tales broke her heart. So I wrote it for her!

    Oh My Gosh, I love this poem. The ending was very surprising. The thing is, come what may, reality can never catch up to the fairy tales told to us from childhood. This poem is really inspiring and also tells the truth.

    thank you, I got to give the credit to my long talks with my dear friend. She is very funny. I told her I would write her a poem just for her.
