From fairy-tale book endings to broken hearts of adolescence, nobody told her that nothing gold stays gold for long.
She dreamed of a tomorrow full of love and warmth, lead on by life’s empty promises, nobody told her life herself will knock you down.
She wanted to believe in magic and miracles, in the beauty of a rainbow, or in the gleam of a sailor who spots a mermaid. But nobody told her dreams are for the brave of heart…
Nobody told her that life is not a fairy-tale happy ending. That endings tend to bring sorrow, tears, heartache and grievances. Nobody told her she would be lying broken on the floor.
If, only long ago as a young girl, someone had told her.
