Fairy Tales & Tragedy

Fairy Tales & Tragedy

Little girls dream of a happy ending 

With the prince of charms and all the gold and beautiful things

Dream of weddings and children and legacies 

And the life of fairy tales

They fear the tragic end and the broken promises

The heartache the pain the loss

They are taught to be frightened of the dark alley

Or the shinning smile of the liar who will rip their heart out

But they should fear

What they really should fear

Is a life forgotten 


With no castles

Or dungeons

Such that when they die

No one knows they even lived.

Because that’s the most likely outcome.
