Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

A Poem by Jaya Miller

Once upon a time,

I saw Cinderalla dance with a prince,

Aurora wakened with a kiss

And Rapunzel rescued from a tower.

And it was lovely.

 

As I grew older, nothing much changed

But I lamented how little I’d known about them,

And how much more I wanted to know.

 

I knew they could sing and fall in love,

But what else could they do?

And I never found an answer.

 

As I grew older still,

I wondered why they sang

And why they fell in love.

But I couldn’t find a reason.

 

They were beautiful,

I thought as I watched,

Maybe that’s why they fell in love.

 

I watched again and again,

And I saw that they were stuck.

They needed princes or fairy godmothers,

And I wondered why I didn’t have those things.

 

I watched again, fully grown,

And saw that I never had a prince

And I was sad.

I never had a fairy godmother,

And I was sad.

 

But watching again this time, I stopped.

I had found my fairy godmother and my prince.

The one who saved and helped me,

It was so clear.

 

I got up and looked in the mirror and laughed.

How could I have been so blind?

My rescuer and my helper had been there all along,

Glittering in my eyes.

 

Once upon a time,

I saw Cinderalla dance with a prince,

Aurora wakened with a kiss

And Rapunzel rescued from a tower.

And it was heartbreaking.

 

They could never be anything more than a princess
