The Knight in Shining Armour

She watches,
She learns,
She adapts.
The innocent eyes;
lose their naivety.
She no longer
believes in fanciful notions of her past.
She has seen too much.
She has learnt
to survive
the harsh realities and expectations,
the summer of her youth
has long since faded into a distant beautiful memory.
The body
grows armoured,
to protect the still, warm and soft heart.
She is no longer the fragile being,
percieved by so many.
She has proved her mettle,
she is forged anew
she doesn’t only survive;
she thrives.
She is a princess and her own knight in shining armour.
