Once upon a time-
so cliche,
so used,
so unrealistic.

It's fiction,

fantasies,

false.

It begins wild stories about two in love,
fighting off villains and creatures,
persevering through it all.

It makes children dream of a magical world,
where everything and everyone is happy and nice.
Trees sing songs and birds do housework.
In The End everything is perfect.

Once upon a time-
so cliche,
so used,
so unrealistic.

Feet, what do I need you for if I have wings to fly?

Nice used of repeated stanzas (first and last) it makes an imprint in your work so the reader remembers it. I like it :]
