Like a little pauper who transforms into a Cinderella,
life is a cycle of changes, a set of pearls on a string
where each orb resembles another stepping stone —
A level to complete before being crowned the king.
We may not have to fight the fire breathing dragons
and save the princesses from erupting volcanic towers,
but life is a series of obstacles, and sometimes we will fall
with a single bite of an apple having turned sour.
A poison from a fruit from enemies we will acquire.
But be not afraid to wake up and break free from the jail
keeping us from our happily ever after endings,
for once upon a time, we believed in these fairy tales.
