Cinderella


My name's not Cinderella,
I don't need to be saved.
I don't have a wicked step mom,
My father's not away.

I don't sleep in the attic
I don't clean the fire place.
My name's not Cinderella
Now get out of my face!

I don't cook all the dinners
the breakfast, or the lunch
if I get in a fight, it's safe to assume
that I threw the first punch.

I'm not your Cinderella.
I don't need to be set free.
But if i did, I hope you'd play
The prince who rescued me! ♥

    Love it - full of bounce and life - and defiance in some ways - but yes we all want our prince to arrive - our knight on white horse to ride out of the sunset rescue us whether we are cinderella or not

    hugs
