Waking Up
I see no prince before me
Waking me with his kiss
Instead I see my plain, white ceiling
I do not step out of a beautiful glass coffin
No instead I (somehow) manage to drag myself out of bed
I hear no birdsong with which I could sing along
Instead I hear the blaring of my alarm clock
It seems the role models of my childhood
Have given me false expectations

The author's comments:
I actually wrote this for a class assignment. We had to write with in the present, but contain allusions to fairy tales.

I like the overall contents of the poem, but I think I would have used a word like pretenses or something along those lines for the end... but that's just me personally. Think that maybe you could check out my poem sometime?
