Her ink-stained lips have kissed too many a forgotten page,

                    [dragon's blood
                                  and phoenix down]


And her Prince Charming has yet to come,

                    [glass slippers
                                   shattering like stars]


So all she can do is gaze out her tower window,

                    [enchanted forests
                                   concealing poisoned apples]


Clutch that corroded and timeworn blade,

                    [cursed beasts
                                   tearing down castle walls]


Toss her childhood fables to the waltzing of the moon,

                    [even broken wings
                                   wish for happily ever afters]


And fly.

                    [once upon a time
                                   there was a girl who became her own hero.]
Just a random ditty that popped in my head.

I quite like how it turned out.

Maybe someday I'll get the courage to be my own hero, too.

Wouldn't it be grand if fairytales could happen like this?

Edit: ...front page for this dumb thing? Thank you very much, but...I don't understand why.

((For somebody to be their own hero.. That's an ending I'd like to see. For the protagonist hopefully I spelled that right to save themselves from utter doom/destruction/sadness. I love it when stuff like this can be applied to the real world. It's something I'd like to keep in mind the next time I need saving.))

It just has nice tone to it. It's somewhat inspirational in its simplicity, and the message people can interpret from it is what makes it a good work I think.

This is true literature, my friend. If this was published, I would see it in my school's Language Arts booklist.

Aha, thank you very much. But it's not that good at all.

"Insecurities, Persephone. Beware your insecurities." Dementer's warm voice called out to her daughter. "They're what'll bring you down most." Hopefully, her daughter would finally believe those words.

...did that actually come from a story or something, or did you make that up on the spot. Because that is awesome.
