once upon a time

i had boundless space and endless time
once upon a time
for kings and queens
with measuring sticks
to enter and roam
in and around my Throne

boundless wonder
once upon a time
for their colorful cloaks
fringed with peacock feathers
mimicking the shades of
wisdom and grace

endless doubt
once upon time
of my own place
in my own castle
where i often walked
looking down for unseen cracks
looking up at my royal guests
hoping to measure up to their sticks
waiting to be wrapped in their cloaks

once upon a time
i forgot i am Queen
unmeasurable
equal
already contained in wisdom and grace

once upon a time
i remembered
and live happily ever after
