Have courage and be kind
Her mother's wishes still fresh in her mind
For she had not a single bone of hate
Leading her courage and kindness to seal her fate
The days turned to months and those to years
For only time could calm her falling tears
Then her father passed leaving her his name
Never realizing his latest wife would bring so much shame.
It was seen so clearly how she was jealous
Along with her two daughters, still Cinderella was zealous
Even when she was ordered to laundry and dishes
And cleaning the pond while feeding the fishes.
Still she always smiled with light in her eyes
For so long she was wrongfully mistreated though one surprise
Her dress torn and ripped to shreds
That is when Cinderella put down her head.
And as her sweet heart ached
She heard a voice that beautifully sang
"A dream is a wish your heart makes"
And that is when the magic became real, make no mistakes.
A pumpkin turned to a carriage
Her simple appearance would unknowingly find a perfect marriage
Placing her as queen, in which she deserved to be
Sometimes magic can exist; just wish and look and you will see.
