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.
