Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time,

We will live in a world where everyone is equal,

Where women can be viewed to be as efficient as men, 

In a world where Sleeping Beauty saves herself from comatose slumber,

By using her intelligence and capability to her advantage,

Where three little pigs can be safe from the big bad wolf,

Without having to worry about the wolf pulling the pigs' vehicle over and shooting them,

All for reaching for their license,

We live in a world where fairy tales are an escape,

But they are just watered-down versions of real life,

Why write about the ideal fictional story, 

When we could make a better world?
