Author's Note This was originally written as an original poem. Still, I kept feeling like it could have also been Raven's POV during "The End". So, I just thought I'd post it as well. Anyway, I hope any readers will enjoy this poem. Review if you so desire.
There was a point in my life
When I couldn't help but believe
In that ever so lovely "once upon a time".
But not now,
Never again. . .
Because wishing on the evening stars
Won't make dreams come true.
Trying hard doesn't mean
You're going to make it through.
Good and evil isn't as simple
As the colors black and white.
And no one might be out there
To save you from the monsters of the night.
Fairytales. . . hated now.
They are nothing more than lies.
And I find it hard to believe that I
Could ever be so blind
To dream. . . to hope
That a star could make things okay.
Perhaps I'm a bit downhearted,
But I'm just saying what I see.
Because the thing about "happily ever after". . .
It's just a fantasy.
