Was I a Princess?

I used to believe I was a princess
So noble and kind and perfect
I was the daughter of a king
So mighty and holy
But now when I look into the mirror
I see a shabby dress and a heart that has been broken
That same girl looked into the mirror years ago
And saw a princess inside a young beggar child.
