Childish Dreams - Poem by Rachel Fogle

A castle in the sky, where dreams may one day come true.
A knight in shining armor, who comes to rescue you.
They don't tell you that the castle doesn't come cheep,
Nor do they tell you that, maybe that dam knight is a cheat.

No, they let you live in ignorance.
Holding onto nothing else,
Only what you read in story books,
And take from the movie shelves.

Giving you the impression that your prince will come,
Or that life isn't empty and it's so much fun.

My childish dreams left long ago.
Replaced by anger and hurt.
For knowing I believed those tales,
Set me up for a lifetime of disappointment & hurt.

Sometimes, you are all that there can ever be,
And no prince charming will come to thee.

We must make the best of what we have,
Or do something to change one day will be,
For no one, but no one can ever change ones destiny.
