Sleeping Beauty

“From this slumber

She shall wake

When true love’s kiss,

The spell shall break.”

I used to deeply hate Sleeping Beauty. I mean, come on? A spinning wheel and you just have to put your finger on it? Sleeping for a hundred years, waiting for a boy to come save you, the kingdom, and pretty much your entire life, from deep deep sleep. But now I am recognizing that maybe this is a metaphor. I, a frequent user and intimate lover of metaphors, think that we are all asleep. One day we get that kiss, or fall in love, or have that adventure, or are saved from sin, and our lives are started. The spell is broken. Our true life starts, our true love story begins.
