Living A Happy Ever After Life

Somewhere Over the Rainbow

A Fairy Tale Life

Growing up, fairy tales were some of my favorite stories. I loved when the Prince brought Sleeping Beauty back to life or when Snow White had her happy ending. Of course not many people know that most of fairy tales written by such people as the Brothers Grimm did not have a happy ending.

In a lot of Grimm's Fairy tales the ending are quite graphic and always come with a moral to the story. Life is kind of like a Grimm's fairy tale. While the ending may not gruesome

A Fairy Tale Life - A Short Poem

Happily ever after
Happily ever after
Who ever said life
Was going to have
A happily ever after

You go through life
Looking for the day
When all of your cares
Are lifted away

When the load drops off
Where nothing goes wrong
The rest of your days
Are both happy and long

Happily ever after
Happily ever after
Who ever said life
Was going to have
A happily ever after

Many times it seems
We live from one trial
To another, hoping
For just one small smile
But in the end no one said
Life was going to be
A fairy tale dream

Happily ever after
Happily ever after
Who ever said life
Was going to have
A happily ever after

Yes I know He does. It is just sometimes I put the load on my shoulders instead of letting him carry the load. In the end I know it will all be ok

Interesting Poem!!! As they say, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade...no life is not perfect, however, I think that we can make our own Happily Ever After as long as we stay positive and stay strong. It is the happy filled memories that lead to our Happily Ever After!!

I feel yourpain as some of lifes tests have worn me down as well.

But, as your poem states - no one said it was going to be easy.

It is going to be all right. Some more things will work in your favor sooner or later. You just need to keep going.
