The Stone Princess


The Meaning of Life

Why am I here?


The thought goes through my mind,


There must be a reason,


But the answer is hard to find,




“The place is yours while you’re there,


Treat it like it’s your own,


It needs some work but you’ll see,


It’ll make you a very nice home,”




It was not entirely true,


The offer he made to me,


For hidden behind the scenes,


Was the power I could not see,




“Do what she wants to keep the peace,”


Her heart has turned to stone,


And I could feel her words strike,


As they pierced me to the bone,




If I must live under her rule,


And bow to her every whim,


Then I cannot stay in this place,


And let my light grow dim,




I want a place to call my own,


To rescue or restore,


And should I maintain it well,


It’ll last a few years more,




If the stone princess should follow,


In an effort to keep control,


She’ll lose all she was meant to be,


Her heart, her mind, her soul.
