I Don’t Want A Fairy Tale

I’m not looking for power,

For worship or praise,

I’m not looking for wealth,

Or grandeus displays,

I’ve no need for honour,

Nor approval or thanks,

And I think all the heroes,

Are comic book cranks,

I don’t want adventure,

Or some mystery tour,

I don’t need to travel,

To a far hidden shore,

I don’t want a fairy tale,

That ends in a rescue,

And I don’t want a fable,

That’s merely to test you,

I don’t want a sonnet,

Of parchment and ink,

Nor a play to be written,

On how I should think,


For I just want a life,

That’s transparently clear,

And I just want to love,

The one I have here.
