Cinderella - Poem by Jie Fang

Is Cinderella leading a happy life with her dearest prince still,
hand in hand, heading towards the same destination?
She knows how to eat with a fork made of gold?
She finds the silver cup to heavy to hold?
She ever fails to meet his expectation?
Can the loneliness her happiness kill?
She has a friend to talk to?

Yes, she should be happy,
she must be happy,
for I have provided her the best life a girl can possibly have,
and I have given her my every care to turn her into a real princess.
The prince said with confidence.

But is she still Cinderella?

    Forget about the prince.
    Just play and live with her guzheng like twins.
    Move on without a wince.
    She would have been Cinderella again ever since.

    Dear John,
    Thank you for your question. But this is also a question I want to ask. I don't know, I really don't know. On one hand, I don't want to destroy the beautiful picture deeply rooted in your heart about Cinderella and the prince living happily together. On the other hand, reality can sometimes be so cruel that it changes people quietly.: -(

    I admire your creativity.
    But what you said is not true. I did not intend to make her a sinner. I just tend to explore her 'future' with the prince. Life always has unexpected turns and nobody can guarantee his/her choice is for his/her own best.
