I would like to be a princess,
If but only for a day
Pretending life's a fairytale
Casting all my cares away
I'd like to live in a place where all I ever needed
Appeared before my very eyes,
And where every person embraces honesty,
Where there is no knowledge of betrayal; of lies.
I'd like to live in a place where everything holds beauty
Beyond all I can compare,
Where sorrow is but a gentle mist
That swiftly vanishes in the air.
Oh, can't I live in a place where there is no need for accolades-
For life is the most awesome prize,
A place where no person ever hid his feelings;
No reason for a masking disguise?
Indeed, I would love to be a princess
Or a damsel who knows not distress
No pretending life is a fairytale,
For all lives are lived with zest.
I want to live as if pain is just a thought
That left us all far, far behind,
Where love is an arrant right
No person is ever denied.
I muse a place where honor is to all
A quiet, unadorned truth-
Where character is a revered virtue
Instilled upon our youth.
Oh, to live where dreams are reality
And all to each are kind
Where suffering is bygone-
Not anyplace that I can find...
I contemplate a place where every child knows a smile
Of joy which has no self control-
I only crave this as the truth,
Facts we could all behold.
I know, you know...life cannot be all merry,
Just some glorious fable...
But still, dream yourself a fairytale.
Believe that you are able.
It would be so nice, just for a day...
To live my life with much laughter.
I will dream a fairytale anyway,
Endeavoring to live happily ever after.

An Invitation to my other blog:
where writing is silent vocalization,
where words give life to life...
From time to time I publish one of my poems here at Nancy's Daily Dish. My poetry, if it can be called such, is mostly derived from the more serious side of me...a part of me that I don't often reveal.
Some of you have sent me such complimentary and kind messages and with them, a handful of you have asked about me publishing more of my poems to this blog. Several months ago I decided to start another blog solely for that purpose...to publish some of my poems. That blog is called Writing Abode (I am seriously in like with the word abode!).
So, please consider this an informal invitation to visit, or follow, me at my other blog, Writing Abode.
I welcome you there.
