I am not Cinderella!


I am not Cinderella
I am not beautiful in every way

I do not have malevolent family members
I do not have a prince

I do not have a fairy god-mother
I am not a silent, graceful girl

I am exceptional
I have my disfigurements

I have kindhearted family members
I have a bread boy

I have a guardian spirit
I am a clamorous, unrefined woman

I am not Cinderella
For me, I am unique.

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
