I felt so helpless and alone,

Waiting for a prince to take me home,

To heal all the scars that kept me down,

To change my rags to a beautiful gown,

I was Cinderella waiting for her Prince Charming,

Always hoped that he would magically stop my self harming,

Fast forward eight years,

I'm still surrounded by my own tears,

I left my childhood dream behind with a broken heart,

Now with my childish demeanor, I'm struggling to depart,

I've realized my prince will never come and save me,

I'm all on my own and only I can set myself free,

I'm not that little girl who needs saving anymore,

With my chin up high, I'll open my own door!
