I Am

August 5, 2008
By Courtney Allen, Dapto, ZZ

I am sleeping beauty waiting for his kiss
I am snow white on her deathbed
I am Cinderella waiting for the shoe that fits
I am beauty waiting for the prince to come out of the beast

I am a princess waiting for my crown
I am the girl with a crush on the boy that doesn’t like her
I am falling in love with you
I am waiting for you
To fall for me too.

This is a poem that compares feelings of ordinary people to those in fairytales and shows that people are all the same.
