No Fairy Godmother Either

Life is not like a fairytale
There is no noble prince
To swoop in and save the day
When I am in distress
And there is not a trace
Of anything royal in my blood
That entitles me to riches
But I love where I come from
And I am strong enough
to save myself
living on a budget gets me by
but most of all
I am rich in friendship and love
And that is worth more than
Any gold and jewels
