Cinderella’s New Decision

‘Remember how much I loved Cinderella?
It’s what messes little girls up!’
Says Lola in ‘Lola Versus’,
on waiting for her prince to come.

Instead of waiting for someone
who offers a perfect fit for you,
how about becoming ‘more perfect’
to better fit the ideal person in mind?

If you take the Buddha as the ideal example,
you become more Buddha-like,
who is lovely to all,
beyond small-hearted worldly love.

Just be yourself, some say.
But that’s the worst thing to say to some,
if they are currently terrible persons!
Always better yourself to become the best.
