It's A Different Fairytale!

Once upon a time, in a land not too far away
There lived a beautiful princess who was 'as white as snow' they say
She laughed, she ran as she spread joy around
And at nights she dreamt of a prince she hadn’t yet found..

Tall dark and handsome, to her those mattered not
When she dreamt of a prince, she dreamt of a different sought
Her prince would be kind and as loving as can be
What she looked for in her prince was inner beauty..

Days passed by, she looked all over the land
And then one fine day, she finally found her man
Virtuous, kind and friendly, he soon became everything she knew
And too top it all, he was tall, dark and handsome too!

And so in this land of fairytales, another magical wedding came alive
They danced, they sang and they laughed till they had cried
And as she smiled her dazzling smile, the beautiful princess knew
This was the man of her dreams, and that dream had come true..

Most poems of this sought, at this point come to an end
But there is an after story to this, the one you've never heard my friend
As the bride and groom exit the hall, no one tries to know
What would happen to this couple as together they grow old?

The beautiful princess goes to her new house, wondering in awe
Staring at her little house, tinnier than she thought
But that she cared of not, for her prince was by her side
She saw their future bright ahead, as he opened the door wide..

Later the handsome prince calls a dinner, for his beautiful wife
Friends, relatives, cousins come to wish them a happy life
As she spoke to one of his friends, the princess saw what she had never seen
Her handsome prince with fists clenched, was turning all green..

The green-ness of his face was something that only she could see
As the other people carried on laughing she thought- ''its my imagination.. maybe..''
At night the still green prince told her, she was never to talk to another man
He blamed her for being a flirt, and he was to stop it any way he can..

The days passed by and she learned- her prince of soft words now always wanted to shout
And every time something angered him, his eyes would pop out
Her handsome prince was now just a green colored man with eyes that could pop
And no longer would he walk in his elegant style, instead he would hop..

More days passed and with his little deceits, the prince was turning small
When she met her prince he was 6ft, and now he was just 3 ft tall
Only the princess seemed to notice, as his voice suddenly broke
No longer were his words so clear, instead he used to croak..

Even more days passed, more consumed in his anger the prince lifted his hand
And as he hit her over the face, she just couldn’t understand
That why the handsome prince with a heart of gold was turning so strange
And why with every misdeed he did, his hands and feet began to change..

So as the prince kept changing, it turns out that the guy she had once fallen for
Was not half as kind, or half as funny and was evil all the more
And once the change wass complete, the princess walked down a lonely road
As she cried in great despair, for her prince turned into a toad!

My mom says its a 'toadly' different concept! :P


  1. Nice one!
    Your Mom is totally right ! Nice concept though !

    Its not a Happy Ending and the Disney wouldn't be liking this!
    I feel sorry for the Princess! All she hoped was a caring and handsome Prince, but she ended in deep sorrow!

    1. Lol! I know its sad but I just think its a good idea if the poem ends like this. :)

    2. Indeed it's a good idea !

      And another lesson to be learnt : "Prince Charming isn't always Charming" ! :P

    3. Exactlyy!! :D
      And sometimes people may seem to be really nice but their true colors could be totally different!

  2. This is really cool :D Awesome perspective man. Glad to've found your blog :)

  3. These are the feelings that a girl experience not only with guys but also when she is really proud of her dream shopping which she gets to do one fine day day, to come back home and realize that the clothes dont fit her in anyway!

    (hey that rhymed!) :D

    Well written Aakriti! :)
