Some Of Us Don’t Need Saving (Poem #50)

You have to realize that princesses

aren’t always supposed to wait in the castle for her prince charming

because he could be fighting dragons for other girls

he could be in the bar tossing coins

taking any girl home

or he could be on his way to your lovely loft

but got stuck on some maiden

thinking that you’ll just be there

certain that you will wait

for no one else but him

You have to realize that

not every princess gets saved

not every prince is genuinely travelling for you


sometimes you have to put the tiara off for a while

get up, and fight your own dragon


And when you finally realize

that you can do it on your own

wear your crown once more

and walk past the prince who finally came

who have nothing else to do

but kneel infront of you.
