Pretty P

Sat upon the ivory throne
crowned Princess
bored with life
bored with waiting…..
waiting……
waiting…..
for her damn Prince to come.
Who decided Princesses could only be pretty?
Who decided Princesses could not slay…..
demons
enemies
dragons alike?
Who decided Princesses were…..
fragile
porcelain like
empty headed
dolls?
but never given weight
credence 
that they were just as good
if not better 
than those wimpy ass Princes?
Princes who get…..
lost
turned around
frightened of their own shadows?
Striding through the crowd
hair streaming
silver gleams the armour
encasing her form
as she enters the battle royale
for this Prince’s hand.
Jousting.
Archery.
Sword play.
Wrestling.
All points to be proven
that one is worth
the consideration of this Prince.
Rather idiotic in thought
isn’t it?
Flowing from her ivory tower
life is meant to be lived
no one needs to save this Princess
for she is all she needs…….

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
