I never wanted to be Cinderella
I am not Cinderella, and I am not searching for a sterling crown
I never wanted to be Cinderella
Although I have prayed for a Fairy God Mother
I have never had or even seen a glass slipper
Nor do I have experience dealing with an evil step sister
I don’t need to find myself a night in shining armor
A man who treats me with respect, is a man I would honor
There is no need to make a wish
Or find a ball gown
I am not Cinderella
And I am not searching for a sterling crown
I only wanted to be seen for everything inside of me
I thought that I could meet someone
That knew that I was his and he was my one true love
I wasn’t ever expecting to be swept off my feet
Most days I was happy when someone actually remembered me
I drifted in and out
And there have been times when I have fallen apart
But eventually I got to myself and was able to feel my heart
I don’t need Prince Charming
Or a man to hold my hand
I don’t need for anyone to stand by me
For me to know who I am
I don’t depend on you
If you want to know the truth
I will still be me
Even if you are no longer you
It may not be easy
If I decided to live life alone
But then I could rest assured
That what I earned was what I owned
If I closed my eyes and I really tried
I am sure I can see you as being my life
But what about me and the dreams that I dream
Why do I have to give up all I believe
You always said you would rescue me
But I have no dragon for you to defeat
Only the demons of my past
And I don’t dance at balls
Without the illusion of a mask
I don’t need to be Cinderella
Or to live in a fairy tale
To have a happily ever after
It will be my hopes and dreams I will share
I may not have a horse drawn carriage
Or experience the perfect story book marriage
But what I’ve learned is what I know
You must have Truth, Faith and Understanding-for a love to grow
No stupid jokes
No magic potions
No promises told
That will soon be forgotten
Cinderella can keep her Prince Charming
And the perfect charmed life
When I come across my happily ever after
It will be shared with someone who sees what is inside
