"Dance like no one's watching.Sing like no one's listening.Love like you've never been hurt. Live like its heaven on earth." -Mark Twain


I wish for true love
something real, that I can feel
like in a fairy tale

Alas, I'm no princess
I can slay my own dragon
I can save myself

Hey there, Prince Charming,
can you love a warrior,
a strong girl like me?

I carry a sword
not a bouquet of flowers
I don't wear a crown

Could you ever like me?
Combat boots and all?
Tell me now, Charming.

Don't waste my time
Prince Charming, I'm busy
so do you like me?

Don't try to save me
I don't need that, I need you
for you to be you

I'm climbing down
I hate heights anyways,
Tired of waiting

Now is your chance
do you want to ride off
into the sunset?

your time is up now
go find yourself a princess
I want Robin Hood


The author's comments:

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

This was a brilliant piece by the way! Favourited :) I totally agree.

I really like this. It's quite witty and you've taken the stereotypical fairytale story and turned it on its head. I like that. Well done.

I love this poem because it is really relatable to lots of people. Amazing!

I did not recognise this as a haiku at first. Perhaps because the third line often has sod syllables instead of five. . . Oh well. :)

Haikus are usually inspired by nature, but any thought can be expressed through a haiku.

So funny and tells girls that being a "girly girl" is not the only kind of girl to be.

I like this haiku. I don't like a prince charming. I like a warrior because I am a warrior!!! :">
