Okay, so I’m trying Free Verse again but the results are just about the same. Besides, I need to get my 750 words down so I’m going to post it as is and re-write in May.
I never much liked playing with dolls
I’d much rather have had a gun
So I could play at protecting myself
And not waiting around to be saved.
I guess that’s why I never much liked
Princesses, or being the one who waits
For someone to decide I needed saving
Or deserved to be given the time.
My sisters liked being princesses
The girly life befit them
But not for me the charmed life
It’s nice, but it’s not for me.
