A collection of poems I've written over the years.
Disney is notorious for princesses getting their happily ever after with their princes.
But what happens when you rewrite the plot and do away with the rainbows and butterflies?
In this tale of Aladdin, what if Aladdin hadn't married Princess Jasmine but fell in love with her brother, Prince Hassan, instead?
There are three sides to retelling a story...
She knew where to begin
The only problem is
How should it end.

A young man and an old man are talking. But the truth lies in all that is left unsaid.
The little girl with dragon wings who works at the dress shop is silent, obedient, and most of all, loyal. She always does all the work asked of her without complaint or question. Nobody sees what’s truly inside. Not even her.
But one day, she meets a being who does.
They want us to have poverty. They want us to serve them. To work for them. To be happy with our unbearably meagre lot in life. But we have each other. We have each other and that means that we have power. We can’t let them know that we have power, not ever. Because if they know, then they’ll destroy us.
The census is about to begin. I wonder if I’ll be brave enough to get through it. But I have to be. We all have to be. Because far too much depends on us, in this moment.
Once upon a time, in a land far away filled with magic of all sorts, there was a type of creature called a Farlen. The blood that they bled, when it hit the sunlight, would turn into a grand host of rubies, one ruby for each drop. And there were men, too many men, who would seek to exploit such an abundant source of wealth.
When a Farlen named Gray was captured, he almost gave up on the thought of rescue, the thought of escape. But help can come from the most unlikely of sources.
All I know is toil and work and rice and beans and saying goodbye to loved ones too early. All I have is a family made up of broken people and a community paved with broken streets. All we have is stories and hope and the Lifemaker and each other. All they want from us is the sweat off our backs.
But on one night I have a dream. On one afternoon a child commits a crime. On one dawn the world starts turning towards a new day and the gods are closer than we ever knew them to be.

The city is filled with everything anyone could ever ask for. With entertainment and fun and beauty and intrigue. So why do I feel so dissatisfied? So why do I feel so empty?
The Wall around the city is high. It’s thick. No-one has ever seen over it. Everyone fears it.
But when I’m kissing Marcus and Elliot on the hard concrete of the school roof, I can’t help but wonder.
What else is there, that the city makes sure to keep us away from?
