My Main Problem Is...

No matter how old I get,
I’m still that six-year-old girl
without a dad.

I keep trying to tell her,
no, there is no prince,
no hero, no Obi-Wan Kenobi.
You have to do it all yourself.

Does she listen?
She pretends to,
then almost immediately
starts living in some make-believe
world where someone saves her
from all this.
