Fairytales

Fairytales

A Poem by Pretty_as_a_Poet
"

every once in a while, I write a song...this is one of them.

"
Long ago, when I was a girl,
I used to dream of a fantasy world,
they all say that I was deceived,
that I'm just a girl, that I'm naive,

I push them aside, I'm gonna go far,
an introverted girl with her daddy's guitar,
I've got it all figured out, they think I don't understand,
Nothing ever goes according to plan,

My friends they like to say:
Fairytales don't exist,
God damn the man who invented true love's kiss,
fairytales are are a childish dream,
you'll be crying blood just to make ends meet,
but why the, again, do I still believe,
I still love and I still dream,
They tell me I'll fail, but to no avail,
because I still believe in fairytales,

Mirror Mirror, on the wall,
sick of being told that I'm gonna fall
shake my head, they don't even give me a glance,
But what do they know, I think I'll take another chance,

I'm going to be, a super star,
They say I'm playing texas hold em', but I don't have any cards,
I push them aside, the world is going to be mine,
although theres a little drop if you can't make cloud nine, 

My friends they like to say:
Fairytales don't exist,
God damn the man who invented true love's kiss,
fairytales are are a childish dream,
you'll be crying blood just to make ends meet,
but why the, again, do I still believe,
I still love and I still dream,
They tell me I'll fail, but to no avail,
because I still believe in fairytales,

I would love to hear this to music. It's a lovely song, with great rhythm and rhyme. Don't ever give up on Fairytales. They're as real as hopes and dreams.

OMG I love these lines:

"I push them aside, I'm gonna go far,
an introverted girl with her daddy's guitar"

I could see you going far in literature! But embracing your imagination over the reality of growing up will be tough.
