Cinderella,
You know you can buy your happy ever after now?
The glass slippers are on sale with the ride, dress and crown…

At least that’s the dreams they sell these girls,
Like you can skip the sand and clam but go straight to the pearl,
Strictly cuz you’re beautiful and you wish for a happy ending,
Which you bought along with the glass slippers that’s Sale is still pending…

The purchase that will create a smile on your face, with how great the deal seems,
But trust, that glass will break, but nothing will break your fall, cuz you actually thought you could buy your dreams

  1. I don’t think there’s enough money in the world to buy dreams. Thank god they are free. Great poem, though, cause it’s not stuff that makes you a princess or helps you find happiness, and a lot of people seem to think stuff is enough. That is sad.

  2. “But trust, that glass will break, but nothing will break your fall, cuz you actually thought you could buy your dreams”
    I think that really captures the truth about life and jerks a certain sense of reality into the reader. Really enjoyed your work!
