The Woods (OctPoWriMo2014)-Day 16

Once upon a time
There was a girl who ran from her safe world
At the drop of a dime
She let her feet hit the ground
Never looked back, never made a sound
Into the woods
Miles away
Ran as fast as she could
Into another day
There were dragons and fire
But they didn't scare her at all
Ran into Prince Charming but he was just a liar
She was too far in for anyone to hear her call
But she wasn't one to waste a moment
Not one to wait to be saved
The world was her component
She never seemed to be fazed
Because she never was like the rest
Instead of going right, she turned left
So into the woods
Miles away
She found her refuge, she found her safety
Only because she stood her ground bravely
Out of the woods
She no longer had to run
The evil and pain was over and done
This is a story too true to be fiction
A bitter pill was her only prescription 
It set her free
And this girl lived happily ever after
I would know because this girl is me
