Disney Rewrite VI

Jasmine

Jasmine, Diana Goldstein

Jazzmin

 

There was a time

of jaunty conduct and lavish beauty

A time of sumptuous dinners

and daunting dances

And in the midst, taming the wild hearts of men

there was a candid princess with a pure allure

a heaven of tenderness

well protected from the storm of life

_____

But soon Reality came knocking on Paradise’s door

And swept the glitter away in one short sway

In a blink of an eye the princess no more

instead a Queen of War

With a firm posture and unwavering stare

she will kill to survive and refuses to bow

_____

Yet there was a time

of fatuous chimera and illustrious masquerades

And in the midst, taming the wild hearts of men

there was a porcelain doll with a flawless smile

a heaven of tenderness

well protected from the storm of life
