Aurora’s Fight against Evil

Five years had come and gone

Princess Aurora and Prince Philip

Their kingdoms had united

After Aurora came to realize

Her plight and that 100 years had come and gone

She’d vowed that only goodness

Would shine upon their land

And so right in the middle

Where once their kingdoms

Had been divided

Aurora had a beautiful white cathedral built

A representation of faith, goodness and God

It was now a rule every Sunday

All the businesses were closed

And all the good folk to church did go

They all stood in awe as the first to always enter

Was the royal family

First Princess Aurora and Prince Philip

And little five year old Princess Briar Rose with her grandpa

Philip’s father King Hubert

Followed by Aurora’s parents King Stefan and the Queen Leah

In they would all march

Followed by the town folk

They were all very adored

Especially Briar Rose

Who was loved by one and all

High up above near the clouds

On a tall cliff stood Maleficent’s old castle

It was dark and haunted looking

Covered by bush and bramble

And no one dared climb up the cliff

Although some thought there might treasures

In the old castle galore

It was Philip who first noticed

On a sleepless night

As the first snow started falling

He stood on the balcony lost in thought

There high up above Maleficent’s castle

Strange clouds gathered

And thunder bolts clapped

It was then and there

That fear struck Philip’s heart

He feared for his wife and daughter

And decided the next morning to explore

Early the before the sun rose

He informed Aurora hunting he would go

So Philip set out with his trusty hunting dog Snags

The elder royalty did think it rather odd

Philip usually went hunting with both dads

Philip knew it would take him

The better part of that day

To reach the bottom of the cliff

And he’d have to hurry to get to the top

Philip left Snags at the bottom

Knowing if anything happened

The dog would have to go for help

When he neared the top

To his dismay he could see lights flickering

In the windows downstairs

Quietly he snuck up and peered inside

There in the once big room

Sat an assortment of deplorable characters

They were boisterous and joyful

Drinking great mugs of beer

And goblets of wine

It was what they were chanting

That made Philip so scared

These dreadful half human creatures

Were celebrating their mistress’s return

One way or another Maleficent

Had managed to do that which she had vowed

And was coming to bring upon them all

Dreadful evil of that Philip was sure

His climb back down was a sad one indeed

Snags greeted him but saw his master was upset

He knew that he’d have to make one more stop

It was at the cottage of the good fairies – Flora, Fauna and Merryweather

They had stayed there

And Briar Rose would visit her godmothers often

They would have to come and help

But he was afraid their magic wouldn’t be

As powerful as Maleficent was

It was the next day

When the kings and Philip sat down to talk

While Aurora hurried Briar Rose

Over to the godmothers for awhile

In the dark gloom of the forest

Beyond Maleficent’s castle

She arose from a deep pit in all of her frightful glory

She had been chained and she had fought

To regain what she had once lost

And she was back mightier than ever

Ready to do her worst slowly she entered her castle

The creatures greeted her with joy

But it was Maleficent’s time to plan revenge

All of the kingdom’s soldiers were summoned

Everyone put on alert for strangers

No one was to enter the kingdom

Unless they showed their papers

Philip and Aurora kept a wary eye

Out for the action on Maleficent’s cliff

For a week nothing occurred

They thought the plan had failed

That Maleficent wasn’t back

Little Briar Rose played joyfully in the forest

With woodland creatures

Much like her mother had once done

There fell a shadow upon her

And when she looked up she saw

A most marvelous pony down by the stream

This pony enchanted her so much

That she just had to ride it

The little horse galloped to and fro

And then it just ran

Frightened Briar Rose hung on real tight

The pony brought the little girl

Straight to Maleficent’s castle

There is quickly flew up the cliff

Where her evilness waited

Briar Rose was never more scared

She had seen pictures of witches

But what was before her was

The most frightening of all

Maleficent smiled a cruel smile

She chuckled and assured the little girl

That if her parents could rescue her

In two days time it would all be fine

Otherwise she would be doomed forever

To live in a dark and gloomy world

And so her creatures

To Aurora’s castle she did send

While Flora, Fauna and Merryweather

Rushed to Maleficent’s castle

As the woodland creatures had run for help

Once the news had spread

Aurora and Philip knew what had to be done

It was good against evil

And they’d never let evil win

It was up to them

Without army without any help

To rescue their precious daughter

From cruel Maleficent Immediately they set out

To discover that many obstacles

Blocked their way

The good fairies flew on ahead

Doing their best to destroy the traps

That lay on ahead

Meanwhile at Maleficent’s

Little Briar Rose prayed

She wasn’t really scared anymore

Because out of the tower window

She had seen her godmothers

She also knew her parents would do all that they could

Finally Aurora and Philip reached the cliff

They began the climb

While the fairies brought the good word to Briar Rose

Maleficent was ready

She had an awful bag of tricks

But what she didn’t know

Was that faith now filled their hearts

And faith could do so much

In the fight against evil

Finally they entered the castle

Where guards summoned their mistress

There she stood in all her glory

More frightening than ever before

An angry and sly smile upon her face

As she bid them good-day

It was a contest she said

First she would throw out traps

For Philip to fight

And when he was beat

And beat he would be

Then it would be Aurora’s turn

To save her daughter

Philip was angry and he was ready

But neither he nor Aurora were prepared for her wrath

She stood before him as a giant serpent

Large tongue flicking

And before he knew it he was bit

Then came a roaring fire

That near claimed him

Philip’s strength was waning

Maleficent just laughed and urged him on

It was at that moment that Aurora

Pulled the large gold cross from her bag

Their priest had just blessed it that day

The light of the shiny cross caught the evil one’s eye

She hissed and spat as Aurora came forth

Backed into a corner Maleficent

Turned into a most frightful horned creature

But Aurora and now Philip behind her

Held on to the large, gold cross

And let its light shine upon it

As they got closer the creature began to smoke

Wafts and wisps of smoke everywhere

And then a miracle occurred

The sun came blazing out

From the clouds

It sent a ray of beaming light

From the cross atop of the cathedral’s spire

It seemed to fill the room

And crossed rays with the gold cross they held

The creature became Maleficent and Maleficent became the creature

Then there was a loud angry shrill shriek

And the creature exploded

Maleficent was now gone forever

The fairies had released Briar Rose

And she ran to her parents

The fairies discovered that their powers had increased

So it was that Aurora had put her faith forward

And together with Philip

They had discovered that faith

Could always win against evil

Maleficent’s castle was destroyed

And no one wanted anything from it

That Sunday the cathedral bells pealed in joy

And the kingdom celebrated and feasted

Rasma - You're back at it and better than ever. What a different angle provided here, making the creature a vampire style creature affected by the cross. Great job!

Thanks for commenting Phoebe. It was inspired because of the original tale and how the evil spell put Aurora to sleep along with everyone for 100 years. So I started thinking how would one combat evil.

So glad you enjoyed this Pearldiver and thanks for the vote. I've always enjoyed being read too.

Glad you enjoyed this Nell. You know it was like I got inspired for this from an unknown source and now that you mention it yes, it is quite appropriate to what is happening in this world. I am quite psychic perhaps this means that truly in real life goodness will triumph over evil.

So glad you enjoyed this and the video Jackie. It wouldn't do to have any other video. Thanks for the share.

Glad you enjoyed a return trip to Aurora's kingdom Mhatter.

So glad you enjoyed this rcrumple.

Glad you enjoyed this Deergha. These Disney inspirations come slow but then they come flowing out. Who knows which character will inspire next. I believe I still have a long list to go. Thanks for the vote and share.

So glad you enjoyed this LaThing. Nice to know it was one of your favorites. I started collecting the Disney movies long ago and this was my first. Thanks for the vote.

Very nice Gypsy. Like a faith cartoon set in a Disney tale. Really outstanding poem - faith can defeat evil; that which resides inside, always bests that which doesn't and never can.

Glad you enjoyed this Frank. Sleeping Beauty was my first video in my collection of Disney.

So glad you enjoyed this Beckie. I figured that anyone who discovered that evil had held her in suspension for 100 years would want to make sure that that evil was destroyed. Thanks for the vote and share.

So glad you enjoyed this Eddy. Hugs.

So glad you enjoyed this Jamie I think that my inspiration comes from way back in childhood I would wonder what ever happened after happily ever after.

Glad you enjoyed this Ruby. Great to return to childhood fairy tales.

Glad you enjoyed this Alastar. I sure hope even in this real world that faith can overcome evil.

I'm not surprised that you were inspired, Rasma, and wouldn't be surprised if you're psychic.

One thing is certain to happen; and that is that reality will triumph, whichever kind of reality it may turn out to be. If we all support the good and not the evil, then goodness is the most likely outcome which would triumph.

When it comes down to it, WE must BE good & plant good seeds in order to reap the good harvest.

We're constantly choosing 'sides' in all our 'small' and 'large' choices, even unconsciously. "Going along with" the prevalent bad trends will ultimately poison our crops: therefore, our harvest will be poisoned.

Good crops nourish goodness in undecided souls and encourage them to be good. But the vice-versa (including obliviousness) works likewise.

I love your beautiful story! It's surely the kind of inspiration which nourishes good motives and actions in those who are open to them. Our choices prevail.

Great insight Nell. We are going to have to make quite a few choices and the best side to be on is on the side of goodness and hopefully eventually faith will come shining through. Glad you liked my story.

It's all metaphor! Nice.

A terrific poem that reminded me of when I read these kinds of stories to my kids. However, perhaps you should add a few periods and commas just to make it stand out a little more and to be a little more professional. I still voted up, awesome, beautiful, and interesting. If you ever wish to comment on any of my stories in like manner, feel free to do so because good grammar is always of utmost importance here on HubPages, I take my writing seriously, and I don't mind a little criticism now and then.
