Raising Royalty: Princess, Queen, Prince, King 2


Princess
Queen
Prince
King
Of all the fine and glorious things
Born into royalty
Yet many don’t see
But the difference starts with you and me

Kindness is free
It doesn’t cost a thing
Yet we forget to hand it out
We forget the happiness it brings

We treat others like they are peasants
We ignore those who value us dear
We point up our noses
When someone needs a helping hand

To be raised in a castle
Yet not play our roles
Teaching the youth that follows
How to be so cold

A prince is a son
And a son looks up to his King
A King is a father
That the son aspires to be

A princess is a daughter
And a daughter looks up to her Queen
A Queen is a mother
That the daughter aspires to be

To be raised in a castle
Yet not play our roles
Teaching the youth that follows
How to be so cold

Sometimes in different households
But the titles are still to be had
Love your child’s father
For he is their dad

A boy hopes to be a man
But he cannot be
If his King isn’t allowed to teach him
How to be

How to love a woman
How to treat others with respect
How to live his life with dignity
And his past to never forget

A prince is a son
And a father is a King
Yet lessons can’t be learned
If you won’t let this bond be

Miles away the Queen may reside
She is a queen in her very own right
Sometimes in different households
But the titles are still to be had
Love your child’s mother
For she their mum

A girl hopes to be a woman
But she cannot be
If her Queen isn’t allowed to teach her
How to be

How to love a man
How to treat others with respect
How to live her life with dignity
And how to always have respect

A princess is a daughter
And a mother is a Queen
Yet lessons can’t be learned
If you won’t let this bond be

So love your son’s mother
Love your son’s dad
Love your daughter’s mother
Love your daughter’s dad

For each is royalty
And the child is too
Despite the different residences
That may separate the two

Kindness is free
It doesn’t cost a thing
Yet we forget to hand it out
We forget the happiness it brings

To be raised in a castle
Yet not play our roles
Teaching the youth that follows
How to be so cold

Princess
Queen
Prince
King
Of all the fine and glorious things
Born into royalty
Yet many don’t see
But the difference starts with you and me

“Raise your children as if they are royalty. Treat each parent with the utmost respect, and they will learn how to treat others the same way” –Monica Renata
