Like Rumplestiltskin’s Daughter

When you were a little girl 
you had no quarrels with the world.
Life seemed so much simpler then
in the warm embrace of family and friends. 

But over time life disappointed.
The truth you’d known became disjointed. 
The trust you’d had had been betrayed 
and you have suffered since that day. 

I hope you know 
that you belong. 
That in facing your struggles 
you’ve learned to be strong.

You’re now teaching others
some lessons you've learned. 
You're turning your pain
into good in the world.
