Isn't it nice to dream of the day
When Prince Charming would come to you to stay?
But would you really want to spend your life
Suffering so much for the ending chance?
Sleeping away the day
Is not how Cinderella got to stay.
She woke up at the crack of dawn
To live her life as her evil stepsisters pawn.
Even Snow White, with her lips so bright
Had to flee into the forest in fright.
Living with seven dwarfs and the forest animals,
While the Queen was trying to prevent her return.
Sleeping Beauty, away from her home
Having to live her life in the forest alone.
The three good fairies are all she sees
Having to live her life among birds and bees.
Pocahontas with her sad fate
Did not end up as Disney portrays.
With her life still unsaved.
The sad realization that you would trade your life for something less
Where you might barely survive
Just to find your one true love
As Mulan going out to fight til the death
Through the camp of enemy she did meet
Barley surviving and standing on her own two feet
Belle found her beast in a castle so high
A tortured man just waiting to die
Unknowing love, unlocking fate
A prisoner suffering to escape.
Ariel with fins so bright
Had to choose one way of life
Her fate was never to see her family again
As she was never meant to swim.
Fantasy would be nice to live
Or so it seems
With so much suffering in between
When you might not even be able to survive
To live out that happy ending you so much.
Inspired by the romantic notion of all the Disney princesses.
