Once upon a time,
there was a girl who was locked in a tower,
waiting for her prince to come save her.
She waited years and years and years,
and no one came.
she realized she was born for her own adventure.
So she rescued herself.
Her feet touched the ground,
and she felt the wind in her hair,
the whole wide world danced at her fingertips.
And she lived.
She lived long and hard and well.
Because who wants to wait their entire life
sitting inside a damn tower
waiting for someone in theory who may never even really come
when they could write their very own
fairy tale instead?
