The Fairy Tale of My Life

Updated on September 29, 2016

A Few Words...

Hello, Friends and Fellow Authors, When I put the title as simply "A Few Words," it's exactly what I mean to say, just a few words.

This poem had no great epiphany attached to it. I wasn't lost in thought like I have been on many of my other poems. Instead, this one came to me quite quickly and out of the blue. I started writing and I just kept on and then...Wallah! It was a finished piece.

I do, however, think it is a very important piece of poetry. I think some maybe will relate to my own life's fairy tale. If not, I hope it moves you in some way. Thanks for reading!! :)

My Fairy Tale

© 2015 Missy Smith

At this point in my life,

when most have achieved

A marriage of samples,

one, two, and three, I have

not yet found a single

knight of armor to whisk

me away or defend my


Once upon a long ago,

I thought I found the

perfect dream, a blanket

In a field of lily whites,

lying in the midst of a

love delight.

Yet, he was just another

Ogre, who shot arrows

through my heart by the

time it was over.

I haven’t the luck of a

duel day decider, when a

handsome gent would

take my hand and promise

love and a peaceful plan.

Two sides...

Could it really mean, that I

was born without a theme?

A born rebel without

A cause, a desperado

Riding fences always


Today, at my place in the

Middle land, there are two

Sides I seem to see.

One side I see a land

of unconditionality;

Horoscopes that will

envision only good things

from above, and making

decisions that I should

never give up.

Then again, I turn to see

the other side that comes

closer to me. Days of lonely

and moonless nights, darkness

that seeps and haunts at night,

whispering to me through my

dreams, promising time is

not my friend, and all will be

lost to me in the end.

The answer is in the Middle

Then in between a place

appears, it’s not on the right

or on the left, it rests

right in the middle of my


A land that comes from

within, and bleeds to me

a perfect story, of a life

lived in valiant glory.

Glory to the hope I’ve

kept, never giving up no

matter how much I wept,

waking many mornings with

A heavy heart, but still

finding a way to do my part.

In a world that’s full of vain,

It reminds me I have chosen

to stay the same, remaining

in my thoughtful place residing

here full of Grace. Amen.

      I do think I have peace of mind on some level, but maybe still searching for that level of happiness I can live with finally. I accept many things, everything about myself, for instance. I actually like the person who I am. I just haven't found all the pieces that fit to my puzzle of life. But, then again, I don't know if we are supposed to. Maybe we are supposed to just add pieces as we go along. :) Thanks for reading!

      Thank you aviannovice. I certainly try to do just that. I'm working on a poem now trying to tweak it to perfection the way I like, but my time has been limited in doing so. These last few days have been extremely busy in my mommy world. lol... I hope to get it finished and published soon, and I hope to get back to your page to read more from you. :)

      Smooth, yet vibrant, and each piece with a cause. Let that fear of the unknown go, and write for everything that you are worth.

      '71, you baby girl you : ) ...

      Oh, yes, about the thumbs up and votes across, I know we all know now that HP has done away with them : ( ...I see Frank thought he voted but at least he told you ...

      Lol...I love 70s music Faith. I was born in 71' and remember a lot of the songs coming on the radio as a child. I wanted to make sure all the songs came from that era. Thanks Again!! :)

      Oh, meant to say you have great taste in music. I have always loved the Moody Blues and especially that song "Nights in White Satin" ...I have the album; that's how old I am : )

      Thank You! And, yes, someone posted the link to the page that stated the changes and why they were taking it away. I don't agree though. I think we all utilized it well. )

      Wonderfully touhing and poignant poem as always Missy, and I love your selection of music..can't go wrong with The Moody Blues, Eagles and James Taylor. Oh, Hub Pages have decided to drop the thumbs and vote buttons. They say that they were not widely utilized.

      Darius, that is so nice of you to say. However, you know... I'm not even sure what a fairy-tale ending would be at this point in life. Maybe I'll know one day. If not, I am happy to know that I found a few in this lifetime that really got me! Thanks again! :)

      I very much hope there is a happy ending to your fairytale :) It's weird how reading only a few small pieces of your work has given me a great insight into you as a person, you deserve that happy ending!

      I also noticed the buttons were gone when I tried to comment on other hubs. Anyway, this was a splendid read. I can relate to these words all too well.

      As always, thank you so much for the support, Frank. It's so appreciated.

      Missy you are really getting poetry done right.. voted awesome

    • Missy Smith profile image

      Missy Smith 2 years ago from Florida

      Ah yes, I do remember reading your poem of desperados and commenting that I felt I related to it. Your poem had really good explanation on what a desperado is, and really good advice for people who find themselves desperados in this life. :)

      Actually, I don't think anything has changed here; I have no idea what happened to the thumbs up and other votes. That's really disappointing. Maybe I hit something to make it disappear by accident, but I wouldn't know what. If anyone knows, please let me know, and thanks Faith for bringing it to my attention. In addition, thanks for your great comments here as always. :)

      Amen, Missy ...He certainly knows you so well and your every care, heart break and tear. Powerful and real. I think we are all desperados at some point in our lives. I even wrote a poem about the desperados in our lives. Of course I love your music choices.

      What happened to the thumbs up and other votes like awesome, beautiful ... I don't see any? Has something changed again on HP?

      Peace and blessings
