Has the message of a fairy tale survived?
Is the concept still true?
Are girls still looking for Mr Right?
Or are they now looking for something new?

Sleeping Beauty was put under a spell,
Rapunzel was imprisoned.
Snow White had to hide out with dwarfs
And the Beast totally fell for Bell.

Cinderella worked day and night to find her prince
Thumbelina had to grow wings.
Ariel had to make a deal with a witch,
But where was Red Ridding Hood’s ring?

It appears to me that it is the girls who had to fight.
The princes just walked in at the end.
Where were they when us girls were in need?
Why when there is trouble, they never seem to be in sight?

Cinderella walked on broken glass.
Sleeping Beauty had to let a whole lifetime pass.
Belle found her only source of comfort and love with Beast.
And Jasmine could only find love with a common thief.

Ariel walked on land for love and life.
Snow White barely escaped the woodsman’s knife.
Is it really all about blood, sweat, and tears?
Does finding true love mean you have to face your fears?

Do we need to change fairy tale endings?
Is it time that the girls should win?
Is it now the men’s turn to be saved?
By the sunlit girl and her massive grin?

Women today are strong and tough.
Just try and let a man say anything but.
If men still think in old fashioned ways
They should learn to keep their big mouth shut!



Learnings:

Life doesn’t always have a fairytale ending, sometimes you have to make it for yourself.

Women are a lot stronger than some literature has made them out to be, we are no longer damsels in distress.

Sometimes a story can show us what to do or what not to do. It can help us plan our own course.

Stories can shape our perceptions.

Wow very insightful all those women from fairy tales did go through a lot of suffering didn't they!
Oh this brings up heaps of questions and things to think about. I think every generation strives for love - has its damsels and heroines. Proven throughout history. They just dress differently and use language fitting for the time. Cool poem :)
