Happily Ever After

We grow up reading all the tales, we know all the lines

Through movies and books, we've learned the rhymes

 

Cinderella goes to the ball and gets the prince

And lives perfectly ever since

 

Happily Ever After

 

Rapunzell gets out of the tower

And gets royal power

 

Happily Ever After

 

Sleeping beauty bites the apple

and still ends up with the prince in a chapel

 

Happily Every After

 

The morals and messages may still be valid

However, life isn't some fairy tale ballad

 

In our modern world the endings should be more realistic

As opposed to the perfect ending - something elusive and mystic

 

People should know that heroes don't always win

Perphaps the Beast never got his curse broke - to add a spin

 

People should know that sometimes the villians succeed

Perhaps Peter Pan fails - and the Lost Boys bleed

 

By making a story more practical and human

Readers will better get the morals - and have acumen

 

Sometimes the world doesn't give a happily ever after

Sometimes it gives you a lot of pain with only a hint of laughter
