but from that, lessons derived
I question the lessons of fairytale movies
which now more than ever feel like a lie
narratives that push beliefs my heart
will never become a serendipitous find
detaching the rope attached to a third of my life
riddled with cynicism to linger in places
clearly displaying no vacancy signs
seldom allowing myself to forget to suffer
often required by leaving pieces behind
My life that has come and gone
in the blink of an eye
And only now that I have begun to ponder
the musings of those who choose to wander
instead of wasting time to discover
arbitrary fairytale crimes
