how to screw the system
The Princess Saves Herself in This One has four sections, each showing the princess's progression in agreement with an overlying theme. The first section focuses mainly on the author, and her battles in the past. It goes through her relationships with family members, her younger life, and her past assault. This section ends when the princess locks herself away in a tower and waits for a prince to come and rescue her. In the second section of poems the princess confronts the issues that have come in her life.
No longer is a princess a girl looking for love and happiness almost exclusively by means of a prince -- a helpless damsel who has difficulty standing on her own two feet. Instead, the princess perseveres with each obstacle thrown in her path, ultimately ending up a queen and stronger than ever before. It seems that this style of poetry, a collection of sentences broken down into several lines, is becoming extremely trendy. If not for the simplicity of reading and the ease of getting a powerful message across, this style may be so popular because of the emotions it provokes. The broken-down setup of each poem emphasizes certain words and phrases that make you think and send chills down your spine. Read one of her poems over a few times, say it out loud, and feel the words on your tongue. Hear how the words are emphasized, and choose which words stick out to you.
