Here’s our first attempt at writing poetry where during our Story Telling Workshops we were made to write a poem on Rapunzel – in our own version. Here you go, here is Rapunzel’s story revisited, in my words…
A woman with very long hair
Looked out of the window with a heart full of prayer
Of sunshine and rainbows, adventures and more
Thinking of a life outside made her heart soar.
She sang tunes of knights in shining armour
Of living her life to the hilt every hour
Of tasting the sweet water from the rivers,
To letting her hair loose just like the arrow that leaves its quiver.
No high fortresses and thick walls
Could contain the vibrant spirit that calls
That filled her heart with joy and optimism
Made her plan her life with full precision.
This is the life that I believe
Will take me out and never grieve
I’m ready to take up the world’s challenges
Because at the end it always balances
This is my story and this is my life
I’m not giving up until I strive
The world belongs to me as much as it does for you
I know I will fly high into the blue
