She who was missed off the guest list
The one who foretold
the princess would one
day prick her finger
on a spinning wheel,
did not curse the heroine.
Rather she gifted her
With powerful charms…
To prioritise self-care, to rest when you need too.
To create an impenetrable barrier of briar thorns, keeping her boundaries intact.
To find a host of fairy godmothers who would forever have her back.
It was society that cursed her,
to think she needed a prince
with a questionable position on consent
to complete her.
