Cinderella

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.

Thank you, I am glad you enjoyed it! It is more based off of the 2015 version with Lily James and Cate Blanchett!
