Cinderella

He has learned to earn joy from paying sorrow's fee He has learned to turn and fight and never to flee He has unloosed the burden of false royalty Cast off at low-tide to be swept out to sea His bended back straightens to a minute degree He walks a bit taller, a better man to be With nothing to lose now, with no guarantee A battle-scarred prince bows to one shaky knee At last feeling worthy to request it of thee To slip on your slipper, it fits, you will see
