I am that little girl,
two feet high,four years old,in the pink lacy gown,
with the bright purple sunglasses,
a plastic crown in my hair.

I am Cinderella,
escaping from my my world
into a beautiful dream
where nothing can go wrong

I am Rapunzel,
trapped by my thoughts
and feelings.

I am Aurora,
looking toward tomorrow
a brand-new day,
a second chance,
without nightmares.

I am Snow White,
running from evil,
finding friends along
the way.

I am Thumbelina, very small
in such a big world

I am a little princess ,
as all the little girls
dream to be.
In my imaginary world of make-believe.
In this play-pretend
dress-up world
I can be anything,
do anything,
dream anything.

I am a not-so-little princess,
five-and-a-half feet high, fourteen years old
dreaming of the day
when my prince shall come.

I am only grounded in
by its heavy burdensome weight
that comes
when one tries to grow older
too quickly
and ceases to imagine

You are never too old for dressing-up games
You are never too old
to stop dreaming on.
We are all little
princes and princesses
at heart.
Don't stop
dreaming, hoping,
and believing.

this was my 1st, so i'm not sure what a normal time is, but this one took between 2 and 4 days before it was approved, not a long time

however, I submitted 3 in the same day, 2 more poems and a nonfiction article, and neither of the poems I've heard anything about in the 3 weeks its been since I submitted them. I love this poem, it's my favorite of what I've done, but i think my second free verse submission was a little better.
