A Short Story by Gianna Cabral
A long time ago in a land far away,
there was a magical girl who lived by the bay.
She had long scarlet hair that fell just below her shoulders,
and a voice so quiet that she remained unnoticed.
She had a slim, yet flattering, unique figure,
and she had a life that appeared to be a perfect picture.
But one thing about her was she kept a big secret,
couldn't open her mouth, afraid no one would keep it.
She casted spells to make life seem a bit better,
In hopes of making people act a little less bitter.
She didn't wear the stereotypical black hat,
and she certainly didn't own a scary green eyed cat.
She practiced magic late in the night,
where the darkness crept, she hid in plain sight.
Isolated from the world,
although quite strange, she felt at home.
They made her feel like she didn't belong,
but this made her feel like she could prove them wrong.
She could give someone their one dream house,
And make a boy and girl fall in love.
She could make you hypnotized, or just give you a simple surprise.
Anything you wanted, she could make it happen,
but be careful because she could easily send you to a different planet.
Just because she could perform magic,
didn't mean her life was not tragic.
Maybe she lived in a fantasy because she didn't want to believe,
that this reality was unfortunate, she had been deceived.
She got caught up in the mystery,
Hung up on who she really was and who she could be.
But one thing I'm sure of is that there is hope out there,
a life where she doesn't have to be hidden and handled with care.
There is a light in the big, open sky,
you just have to find it, obtain it, and just truly fly.
One day eventually she will find the light where she can be free,
just like how life is supposed to be.
