I dreamed a dream


I dreamed a dream when I was young
I dreamed a dream many times
When I was 5 I felt so alive
Dreaming of being a keeper of the zoo
Fighting off the lions
If ever they escaped from their cages
But my mind wandered to a firefighter when I was 9
Fighting fires and saving the day
Oh how I dreamed of being a hero
But how they ever stood all that fire I’ll never know
When I was 13 I dreamed a dream of fame
An actress, a writer, a director or maybe a scientist!
Standing in my lab creating potions that would save lives.
A pinch of this maybe a dab!
Now on my 16th birthday I dreamed a dream of being an author
Sitting at my computer weaving stories of mystery, fantasy, and intrigue.
All these dreams I have dreamed have seemed to amount to nothing
For now I’m a simple person.
I’m not a writer, firefighter, zookeeper, scientist, director or an actress.
As I type this I tell you now find what you like quick
And make it stick!

The solitary child.
