The Unhappily Ever Afters

Blurb

We wish to live so beautiful and true, Like that of a fairytale creature. Without knowing what they go through, To be such an idolized feature. Most stories are not like these tales, That we wish to change lives with. They would too cry and wail, If they were not but a myth. Here are the tales, Of those who aren't real, With all the details, And hardships that they never had to feel. If they were in our world, And lived lives just like ours. Their epic stories unfurled, And laid clear without the shining stars. See what happens when they are just people, Fighting to live in a harsh land. Taking away their happy freedom, And forcing them to live with their given hand.

Prologue

Don’t base Your Life on A Fairytale,

For not all of them end happy.

They are filled with heartache that will make you wail,

And only end sadly.

Not everything is as it seems,

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover.

True some stories end as beautiful dreams,

While other are a nightmare that you are forced to discover.

Your life is not a fairytale,

And be glad that it is not.

Don’t reach for something that in which you won’t prevail,

Live a life that you will be joyed to fight a battle needed to be fought.
