Fairytale Princess - Poem by Connie L. Burchett
To All the Children and Adults of Abuse
A little Fairytale Princess
Is what you will always be to me!
With your long dark hair
Always blowing in the wind
Eyes of hazel,
That changes color with your every mood
How your eyes sparkled when you would smile
The sound of your laughter could fill the room
So young and innocence so full of life,
It was all but a dream
How you would run and played
In the fields to your hearts delight
Remembering the butterflies dancing all about
A spirit so sweet; but wild and free
So much love to give and spread around
Who would ever dream that life could be so cruel!
I found out that day you were stripped from me.
What was taken from you that night; no one had that right
For that was your right, to give away on your special day.
The quilt, the shame and the horrible pain is too much for a child to bear
Wandering when? Will it ever end?
Your childhood gone and stripped away never to return
Oh! Why did you have to grow up way to fast?
That beautiful child of only eight now gone and lost forever
A broken spirit, no hopes or dreams of what life might have been
Now shattered and tossed upon the ground.
A blank expression upon her face
Eyes are dark and hollow, no sparkle remains.
No reason for a smile to brighten her face
Or to brighten up someone's day.
Now a lonely and frighten child
Wandering how people can be so cold and so cruel
They don’t know nor do they understand
Her pain, the shame and the guilt she must carry around
They think it’s all her fault, a child of eight?
Their laughter, their sneers and calling her names echoes’ through out the night
She doesn't know whom to blame
She cries softly to her self, so no one else can hear.
She prays every night that it would all come to an end
No one knows and no one really cares
The emotional scars, low self esteem that she must bear
Until her life finally comes to an end
Come to me, my Little Fairytale Princess
For you can see that I have grown up
I can give you protection now
The way it should have been that night so long ago
Never again will you be afraid of the night when you close your eyes in sleep
I will always be there with you through out the night
No more tears will you ever shed again from the pain
No more new scars will you ever have bare
I will wrap my arms around you and hold you throught the night
So you can feel loved and feel safe the way it should have been
One day when we are together you will know what a treasure you are to me
One to behold with that soft and gentle nature that I have grown to love so
So I ask you now to come and be one with me
Our spirit can become wild and free like it was at that tender age of eight
There's no need to rush; take your time to be that child again.
One day soon you will be ready to be one with me
Please! Don’t feel like you need to run or take flight
The way you did so many times since that night that made you scared
My little Fairytale Princess
Can’t you see how you have always been a part of me?
One day soon we will become one
We will find true love and inner peace; that will make everything all right
You will see when that day comes: Then and only then can we really be set free….
