Frogs and Princes

Think I've kissed a lot of frogs
in my search for a prince
each time thinking I've found the key to happiness
each time being shot down in flames
my heart has learnt to be resilient
but my arms are still empty and my skin still untouched
but for brief moments in time
when yet another
promises much
and delivers to begin with
and then
slowly
or quickly
runs
hard
fast
and swiftly
away
so much for rising like a phoenix out of the ashes
so much for being a beautiful person inside
so much for having the looks that make people stop and stare
Because it's not
and they
are not
enough
not enough to make the difference
not enough to make someone try
just simply not enough
others might say it's not your fault
but I have found myself taking the blame
for after all
I
am
the common denominator
I have learnt
that
tears are not
the responsibility
of another
merely
the letting go
of an
overwhelming feeling
or
of things
carried
far
too
long
The tears are
simply a goodbye
to the
past
to the
pain
to the
baggage
Yet always in my heart
I find the strength
to believe
and try again

So you see Mr frog
I thought you were my prince
your disguise was good
though I've seen under it since
I've taken you off
the pedestal
realized you are
but
a man
I know
that
I cannot
make another
feel
if it's not in their heart
but I can
see the soul
I can
offer
the beauty of friendship
the softness
of acceptance
and I
can
hold
another
in friendship
alone
whilst
they find
their feet
and
they learn to
walk again
and hold them
steady till
they are ready to
fly
So I will take my
resilient heart
I will take my
looks
brains
and affection
and I will give them
willingly
because we all
need someone
who can
hold us while we heal
take that which is good in us
and cherish
and encourage it
and with the breath of kindness
blow the rest away
because I know
in my heart
one
day
my prince will come... Even if
he is
disguised
as
a
frog!
