Once upon a time and a fairy tale starts;
Life painted with love – correlation of two hearts.
An innocent princess trapped by the evil forces;
However her fine character pursues love and its courses.
The villain of the story is proud and heartless;
Torturing and tormenting the princess – his behavior never artless.
Patience, tolerance and love represent the flawless princess;
Waiting on her prince charming – seeking the clue for his access.
Beautiful princess is then spell bounded or caught in trouble;
The world vanishes from her sight and is captured in a bubble.
The villain’s pleased to harm the lovely princess and her virtuous character;
Before it’s too late, the prince appears to fight the evil and claim her for life and after.
Good always triumphs over evil, they say;
Life’s complex but nothing can defeat the sunshine’s ray.
The prince defeats the villain and makes the princess his forever;
They fondle and kiss each other – a new journey they begin to endeavor.
Every fairy tale is “HAPPILY EVER AFTER”;
How can they never cry and always treasure the smiles and laughter?
I’m grown up and it’s my children’s time to adore these tales,
There is no end to villains even if I dig up on all the details.
There is no happily ever after – ups and downs are part of life,
Cherish each other’s differences and adore your spouses whether it’s your husband or wife.
very nice naima, and if i’m allowed to pick a favorite spot it would be the second stanza as it speaks volumes. the ending of course really is the way it should be:)
Awww Don 🙂
Thank you so much for liking it and picking up your favorite spot! Your comment always enlightens my day! 🙂 Hope ya are doing good.
With love and blessings,
i am doing very good. i’ve shown that hummingbird one to a number of ladies in my local area and it’s generated a few ooooh’s and awww’s. i gotta like that. make sure you let me know when you leave for your schooling, OK!! you may have already, but i may have forgotten.
WOW! Seems like someone is having a good time!!
Nah, I haven’t left yet – must be leaving by 25th or 26th! Lets see which date gets finalized!
I Love it!
but then I like faerie tales for I believe there is always meant to be a happily ever after for everyone, you just have to be patient
though I think most of take the roads with the most twist and turns…
Good one !
Thank you so much for dropping by and sparing some time to leave a comment!
I agree with you but happily ever after is not the concept to be applied, ups and downs are part of life so I am never convinced with this “EVER-AFTER” attached with happy!
Thank you for your comment!
I remember having a big big book of fairy tales. I must have read it a lot because the cover and spine were ragged. But also remember always questioning some of the happy endings. I still am a “Why this?” and “Why that?” kind of girl. lol
So much like me!!
So young, so wise…
Thank you so much for the encouragement!
I LOVE fairy tales, and legends around the world, when I was very young I used to read a lot, and now even I don’t read anymore, I still believe in fairy tales, firmly believe. Let’s think in this way, if the villain, is ourselves, the evil thought buried deep in our heart, that shaking the earth to come out of us. Our tasks are than find ways to defeat one and another villains that come into our way to the path of happiness. It is like the emperor new dress, it might be easy to see the point of the tale, but others, have a deeper meaning when we think carefully, even though the author might not be aware of =). Have you seen the Polar Express, the animation? It is a beautiful story.
A very delightful piece of writing to read!
Don’t give up things that we have as a child, and embrace it like the tree who embrace her past, but still able to grow, and to support the dreams of the leaves ultimately =).
Thank you so much for your humble and wise comment! Always feels glad to have you reading my work!!
I have not seen Polar Express, I think I gotta see it now as its coming from you!!
With love and blessings,
There is another movie I like very much, but I could not bear to watch it for the second time, it is called the bridge to terabithia. It is one of the most beautiful movie I have watched, it talks about imagination of kids, this film has a huge impact on me on the world of imagination.
Oh yeah!!! How can I ever forget that?????
I read the novel first when I was 11 and then I saw the movie an year later!! I was broken when Leslie died!!! It really is one of my favorite books from my childhood – a true tale to explain friendship along with a vivid imagination !!!! Thank you for reviving such a memory and making me tear-eyed with a smile!!
Love right back,
Yes, I could not bear to see Leslie died, she is so adorable, so sweet, so imaginative…
I know, it was a terrible ending!!
don’t give up on happily ever after… but enjoy the journey and the adventures
Yeah, somewhere in our brains and hearts we never do give up on those happily-ever-afters due to the audacity to *HOPE*!
Thank you for your lovely comment and a wise advice as always!
may you be audacious all the days of your life
And may you keep inspiring me!! 🙂
You are spot on.
Damn! I am cool, am I not eh???
If you were any cooler Algore would have to shut his beak about global warming! lol
I appreciate the sense of humor 😉
AHHH.. fairy tales! :)))) my favorite! :)) good thought!
I know, I am reading them to my baby cousins and I feel violated!! Where the hell is the prince eh?? And my cousin burns the fire by asking why she was not born as a princess! Lol.
Kids and their questions!
Fairy tales are the dreams of what we would like things to be, and reality is the blemished shadow of those dreams.
I agree with you! Fairy tales are exactly how we want to imagine life but life is always different in every aspect – from not being a princess to no once upon a time thingy!!
Thank you for your comment!
Lovely. Very nice 🙂
Thank you so much for your lovely nice comment 😀
You’re most welcome!!
Very nice, Naima. I’m inclined to go back and read some of those tales – some of them tell deep truths.
Awwww.. They do and at times we can relate too well except of belonging to the Royalty! Lol.
With love and care,
Apparently, the tales of a girl or boy finding out she/he is really a princess or prince are telling us to look for our true spiritual nature, which we have forgotten.
Actually, I don’t feel we can ever forget it!! Our heart and soul always compel to keep us intact with the spiritual nature that keeps on reminding us the heck of our good side! 🙂
I would want to believe in fairy tales, even though I am past those times when world appears simple. It is demoralising to the likes me though, who look around to see everything pure and simple come down. However just like character, faith is tested when you are up against it. So… I guess we just have to believe in the goodness of things in the world till they come true. Like the happily-ever-afters 🙂
WOW! You posses a jolly soul! I appreciate your positive energy and spirit! Good Luck with life!
I guess reason and logic do not cover everything in the world. Moreover, reason comes only after something is believed in by someone and researched for. Reason does not lead to belief- its the other way round. So, by that logic, the happily-ever-afters come to those who believe in it- irrespective of any examples or theories supporting it.
And believe me your logic got me all twisted to find the meaning of logic in the dictionary! (lol)
Jokes apart, simple as that, those who believe in happily-ever-afters, they might see it in their very own way! [Smiling]
Its beautiful 🙂
Awww.. You are so kind to say that, Neeraj! 🙂
Nahi re!!.. Its really b-e-a-utiful 😀
Fairy tales are meant to be fun but life does not always end with happy ever after and you are right there are many ups and downs. But you learn from the downs if only just to avoid the same ones so they too are valuable and a great teacher!
I agree, downs are one reason why LIFE is called LIFE!
Thank you for the feedback! I hope ya are doing well! Haven’t heard from you since long!
Oh , I have been here just first busy writing about a subject important to me and then replying to the comments. But don’t worry I am always following you and would not have it otherwise.
Awww.. You are terribly sweet, lady 🙂
You rock MORE! 😉
I don’t really believe in fairy tales. there are no perfect princesses or princes to save them. but we do save ourselves and sometimes each other. still, this was lovely and the picture.. beautiful.
Oh yeah, nothing in reality!! But they do play an impact in a way to give us hope that life does have good turns as well – bad turns do not haunt you for life!!
Thank you for sparing the time to comment!! I hope you and your boys are doing good! 🙂
With love and blessings,
Hi again Naima! Loved this work. I think it is one of your best. It is not important whether fairy tales are believable or not. They are not supposed to represent true life. It is the spirit of the moment that matters. That is why they are so popular. Good triumphs over evil and they make us feel good!
Love ya girl,
Awwww… you are extremely sweet and kind to say that!! Love you loads too!! ❤
Thank you for appreciating and encouraging and I agree with every bit you said, fairy tales are not meant to represent the real life and the spirit of happiness makes them a merry-go-round!!
Thank you for such a warm comment! You made my day, H!!!
Love is an illusive seductress we get it but never when we want, never from whom we want and never from where we want.
My solution : stop expecting and start giving. It has worked for me . !!! 😀
Your solution is an answer to every random problem or down in life whether it is love or not!
Thank you for dropping by and having the time to spare me with a beautiful and wise comment!!

I am reading it just now 🙂
🙂 Thanks. Tell me if you like it
I loved it! That is a beautiful piece of writing. Shared it on my Facebook for others to read it too. You highlighted the reality of life vigorously how all we need is ourselves only and NO ONE else’s arms!
Thank you for such a good read. When did you write this?
Last May, a week before my 20th birthday. It was really just me talking to myself. Its surprising how many people were touched by what I wrote. I still couldn’t believe someone read it, and their comments and letters to me after reading it is just overwhelming, moving. Hence, I want to write more poems and essays that will touch people’s heart, say what they couldn’t and let them hear the words they needed to hear.
Awww.. you are such a pure soul to make your life and lives of people around you better! May Almighty bless you.
Love and hugs,
Thank you for visiting my blog.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
You’re always welcome. Your photography is commendable! 🙂
