Cinderella

Cinderella
Allie Bergman, '18

What is perfection?

Perfection is
A fairy tale ending
Perfection is
Unreachable
People always
Want more

Every movie
Ends on a high note
Not showing
What happens
Afterward
All of the conflicts
That will occur

Cinderella getting
Married to Prince Charming
Then BAM!
The credits
Start rolling in.

They don’t show
All of the fights
Or the divorce
Once they realize
They have nothing
in common

If only you could stop life
At the end of a movie
