The Birth of Apathy

born under a bad sign
cancer
like a tumor grew

the baby was unplanned
a mistake
everybody knew

yet still she would play
pretend
each and every night

getting lost in fairy tales
drowning
out their fights

until one day her mother
said
Daddy’s gone away

it’s not your fault, it’s just
sometimes
hearts? they go astray

but what about the
princes?
she asked her mom in tears

who love the pretty
princesses
and live happily for years?

her mother shook her head
letting
out a sigh

those are just stories
this
is real life

her parents named her
destiny
but at the age of ten

she changed it to
apathy
for it was then

…she learnt that endings
aren’t always happy.
