"Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened."

-Dr. Seuss

I'm a clumsy girl by trade,
A sword-fighting princess at heart.
I pretend to have it all together
But in real life, I fall apart.

Laughing is my pastime,
But often, I actually snort.
Then I imagine myself a knightess,
But it's only fantasy, of course.

In my head, I have these dreams
Where I'm the heroine in all my books
I'll name a few for your enjoyment, but you see,
These stories from my library I took.

Mr. Darcy would ask me to dance,
I could make the Beast human again.
I would help Frodo save Middle-Earth,
I could bury my face in Aslan's mane.

I'd ride in Josephine's flying machine with Jack Dawson,
Make the Phantom's song take flight.
I could cause Prince Charmont to laugh
And ride Aladdin's magic carpet into the night.

I would help the Mad Hatter save Wonderland,
Or assist Jack Sparrow to retrieve the Pearl.
Perhaps I'd crack the code with Nancy Drew.
Then with Ariel and the mermaids I might swirl.

At night, I would lose my glass slipper,
Or be captured by Captain Hook,
Then awaken from my dream to find
It was only what I read in a book.

To love, to be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and vulgar disparity of the life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”

This is delightfully adorable!
