    Once upon this time
    In a galaxy
    Just off some city's Martin Luther King Blvd
    There lived a not so lil girl
    Who hadn't discovered her Black Girl Magic
    She was was an Aladdin's lamp
    Their were three blind mice
    DayDay or Manny or Killer B
    Rats anyway
    They rubbed on her
    She the genie
    Answering their unlimited wishes by text messages
    Craig list personals
    Little boys who pretend to be men play games
    They slanged rocks for fun
    The ripples could be seen skipping for blocks and blocks
    One day
    The little girl looked into a magic mirror and saw her reflection
    She could see her crown
    She smiled and was pleased
    I'll tell everyone
    I'll show everyone
    Everyone will see that I am royal
    So she told her mother
    "Mommy do you see? My crown? Do you see it?"
    Her mother replied
    "I see your trifling *** ain't cleaned my house. That's what I see."
    She went to her supposedly BFF
    Who stayed in the next project village
    "Hey Gurl I got this crown on. Do you see it?"
    The BFF replied
    "Oh, you think you better than me?"
    She didn't know that the girl brought her magic mirror to show her BFF how to see her own crown
    She told Day Day
    Or was it Manny?
    I know it wasnt Killer B
    Cuz he was caught in the poppy fields and they locked him in the San Quentin towers
    She told them
    "Do you see me? My crown? Do you see it?"
    They replied
    "Yea ***** I see that ****. I see that **** can get me paid"
    So she traded her crown for Synthetic hair
    Beauty Supply counter make up
    Camel toe spandex
    3-4 inch pavement pushers
    Concrete Brick road was no ease on down for her
    She kissed tadpoles and beasts
    Beauty fading
    She had fallen down the rabbit hole
    Tricks replacing her Black Girl Magic
    The Wiz nor Fairy Godmother could save her
    She didn't believe
    Besides how can dreams come true if you dont have any dream to begin with
    This has no happily ever after ending
    Her crown was always there
    Invisible if you don't know it's power
    Invisible if you don't know yourself the alchemy
    She had bitten the poisonous apple to the core
    This has no happily ever after ending
    Red RidingHood never makes it out the woods
    Too many wolves desiring her basket full
    Goldilocs got too comfortable
    Sleeping in strangers beds
    This has no happily ever after ending
    Just one last act for the finale
    Magic mirror cracked
    No seven year bad luck to worry
    She like her invisible crown has disappered for ever
    There isn't any Prince Charming coming to get her
    Feet too swollen to fit glass slippers
    Everyone could see it coming
    Overdosed
    This has no happily ever after ending
    Just...
    The End

    you gotta respect yourself. you gotta know yourself. you gotta love yourself.
    you can't let peer pressures...and negative relations pull you to the other side.
    you gotta resist bad temptations, and stay on track.

    you gotta be you

    acknowledge your royalty...even when others try to wear you down.
