Fairytale

When your little you believe that all the fairytales are true,
That when you get older a handsome prince is going to marry you.
You will live in a palace with a huge closet filled with every kind of dress,
No one could tell you different because you wouldn’t believe any less.
Once you were a bit older those dreams started falling apart,
You didn’t meet any princes just a lot of boys who broke your heart.
The dresses girls wore were not like those ones you dreamed at all,
They were not long and flowing, they were just extremely short and small.
Girls were not automatically your best friend; they were usually just cruel,
You soon hated shopping, yourself and especially going to school.
Eventually the dresses, palace and your prince became a thing of the past,
And all your hopes of your dreams coming true soon diminished fast.
Soon all of it was forgotten and you just tried to make it through each day,
The dreams of your fairytale coming true were completely thrown away.
Even as you get older you should still dream just as a child would
Maybe that’s where people go wrong, they accept less than they should.
Life is hard but in the end what you regret most is the chances you didn’t take,
Remember your life turns out the way it does by the decisions that you make.
So what if the world isn’t always filled with joy and laughter,
That doesn’t mean that you can’t still have your happily ever after.

    There is nothing wrong with fairy-tales or dreaming of a utopia oblivious of harsh realities of life. The poem has put across the paradox quite beautifully in the concluding lines:
    So what if the world isn’t always filled with joy and laughter,
    That doesn’t mean that you can’t still have your happily ever after.

    This is a nicely crafted poem with the reality of life that we face when we get older. the fairy tale of the childhood has nothing to do with moment to moment struggles of life. As we come in contact with different types of people the true color of life unfolds. But the poem ends in a positive note. That we have to go on living. Enjoying the trivialities of life.
    Thanks very much and Congrats.

    Fairytale there has thrilling, adventurous mood without any harm, dreamy everything and every moment automatically but the life is not like that. Prince and princess is not the easy processing rank here. Beautiful poem penned. Congrats for being selected this poem as POD

    Leave alone dreams one bases on in the design of one's entire life, how many were able to remodel even a wee bit of it, fairytale way? A realistic view on life on earth. Congrats on your positioning. Thanks for sharing an awesome poem with us. x

    (2) As I said your poem Fairytale is a fascinating one and beautifully worded. A 10++++++++++++++ for Vote/rating.
    Absolutely, (I cite your concluding line) : That doesn’t mean that you can’t still have your happily ever after. You still can get it, your happily everafter (one word) . I have mine, Brooke. CONGRATULATIONS for the MPOTD. Hurray!

    A loveliest poem, most gorgeously rendered and fascinatingly worded. Just bit mistakes: first line must be
    When you're little and not When your little, the first is a verb and in the line you wrote, that is a possessive Noun, In line seven(7) must be The dressed girls and not The dresses girls. But being POTD YOU so deserved, Brooke. (2)

    'dresses' in the seventh line is okay in the context of the meaning the line conveys.
    'your' in the second line is of course a mistake in the written context, although it is accepted colloquially.
