Worth the Wait


The fairy tale began

in the usual way

Plans, dreams

a vision of perfection

Until the magic mirror


revealing the Dark Side

Chapter Two

brought together

two fractured souls

Desperately trying

to slay dragons with

broken arrows that somehow

missed the mark

Editing began

frantic at first

Slowly morphing into

deliberate intention

The heroine became

her own hero

as she rewrote the story

Wasn’t until

she let go

that plans, dreams

and that vision of perfection

fit her version

Allowing enough room

to let the true prince

share her castle
