Rapunzel was locked in a tower.
The princess in the Sleeping Beauty fell asleep for years.
Cinderella was scrubbing the floors of the mansion.
They all had the best time of their lives outside the gate.
Atleast for a while.
Beyond the gnarled trees without leaves,
Farther away from the pointed edges on the walls
There was a world beckoning her.
She vowed to try again to cross the barriers
It doesn’t matter if they dragged her back every time.
She will do it again and again.
Even if it meant die trying.
