I Don’t Want A Fairy Tale

helen midgley


I’m not looking for power,

For worship or praise,

I’m not looking for wealth,

Or grandeurs displays,

I’ve no need for honour,

Nor approval or thanks,

And I think all the heroes,

Are comic book cranks,

I don’t want adventure,

Or some mystery tour,

I don’t need to travel,

To a far hidden shore,

I don’t want a fairy tale,

That ends in a rescue,

And I don’t want a fable,

That’s merely to test you,

I don’t want a sonnet,

Of parchment and ink,

Nor a play to be written,

On how I should think,


For I just want a life,

That’s transparently clear,

And I just want to love,

The one I have here.
