Faiytales

Fairy tales date back to,
when we were just little kids
They tell tales of love,
happiness, and hope
They give little girls dreams,
and aspirations

Fairy tales give young girls dreams and hope,
that real life won't let you imagine
Sleeping beauty gives girls the dream of having their,
prince charming waiting when they wake up
Cinderella gives the dream of being saved from her wicked, 
step sisters and mother while being whisked away by her prince
Bell gives the dream that even living poor with no money,
that a girl can turn a beast into someone who can love
Little red riding hood gives hope that even though you,
stray from the path good fortune still finds it's way to you

Fairy tales give little girls false dreams and hopes,
real life won't let you imagine true happiness for a reason
Real life sleeping beauty never woke up at all,
her prince never came and she died laying still and smothered 
Real life cinderella never got her happily ever after,
she stayed with her mother and step sisters unhappy till death
Real life bell never got the beast to fall in love instead,
she died a loveless poor women with no money
Real life little red riding hood didn't make it to grandmas,
the big bad wolf killed her because good fortune never found her

Fairy tales date back to,
when we were just little kids
They tell false tales of love,
happiness, and hope
They give older women fake dreams,
false hope, and a bitter soul
