We do not believe the stories
of once upon a time
imagining a world apart from ours
we brush off old tales
meant to frighten
meant for love
meant for belief in all we ignore
until our awakening
in a strange place
beyond a dark wood
in a space we never knew existed
once upon a time
is our time
once upon a time
is our story
true for all the fantastic
true for all the unbelievable
a path each of us travels
to find an ever after – Caroline A. Slee
