A princess story

This poetry has been published in the anthology "She The Shakti" which can be purchased HERE!


Once upon a time
(They say)
It started,
It all started...






Once upon a time
(They say)
It started,




It all started...
The story,
(They always do)
The story starts, before you know,
Before you let it, before you accept
Before you say – you’re welcome!
Before, you let go!


The story – it happens all the time.
Always!
Why, you ask
Because…


Because,
You’re a princess.
Right! Even if you do not know, never knew…


You know what happens to a princess,
Then,
Don’t you?


Won’t you, know?


No, you say?


But –
It is not on you, not anymore.


And so…
It’ll happen.
It’ll happen, anyway.
The story, nonetheless!


They happen!
Stories…
They always do, before you ask.


Why, you ask?


Because, darling –


You are a princess.
Right! Even if you do not know…
