Princess on the bus
Princess on the bus go slow, riding to the distant shore,
Show merriment, though rides rigour, with folks, friends galore,
Let some in, don’t let some in, be the captain of your being,
Don’t be judged, be authentic, don’t fall for tricks or dance the ring
Princess on the bus look out, for love, beauty and peace, shout out,
While riding through high and low, of laughs, joys and some sorrow
Shades and seasons are just a part, of this great long spectacle,
There will be green eyed, disdained and fakes, don’t nest in heartaches.
Princess on the bus don’t wait, for no prince or knight for rescue,
Be strong, find your way, for you at midnight there’s no curfew
Times have changed, no games but people are played, abused,
So, don’t fall for less, no compromise, and don’t be a statistics or trend
Princess on the bus be sure, no one can choose for you, to go
Stand tall, believe and fight more, be a champ, be Maya Angelou
Stamp your mark on the time, not hearts on sand, that’s washed and gone
At times, get off that bus, hop on your motorbike, ride though into a new dawn.
Wrote this one for my daughter and every dad's princess, may they get the world they deserve much better than their dads can dream off.
