fairy tales

A Poem by Anika

She carries herself with so much caution; as if someone at some point in her life convinced her that people were only out to hurt her and that there wasn't a drop of sincerity in the world. The saddest thing is when she's talking about her hopes and her dreams with so much excitement but then stops half way and her passion is somehow drained from her eyes in only a second; it makes me wonder if another someone at some point in her life told her that she'd never be what she wanted to be and crushed her dreams with their cold hands and made her believe to this day it was all hopeless.

I wish I could make her believe it's not, and tell her that those people in her past filled her head with lies; that they were wrong. But how do you make someone believe in reality when they grew up reading fairy tales?

You give them an example,because if you go with the flow and are just a part of the show the only place you go is circling the drain...nice poem!
