By. Nova Macknik-Conde

It’s my life, it’s a fresh new page

Just waiting to be written,

Don’t need the Fairy Godmother

The knight in shining armor,

The king and queen,

A scaly dragon

Nor a magic wand

It’s my story

It’s my pen and paper

No preordained fate to lord over me

It’s my turn to show the world

That my life is mine, goes by my word

Can’t you see, the only thing waiting for me

Is me

I’ve been sleeping for a hundred years

Just to know

What it’s like to be alive

What it’s like to be me

I will not wait around

For my happily ever after

The past is unchangeable, unbreakable

The future’s not yet found

I will choose to live in now
