Live My Dreams! - Poem by MVJ Simon

Live my dreams

My parents wanted me to be number one
So I mugged formulae and learnt history
Wrote essays and grasped logic
Crunched trigonometry and ate note books

But yet alas, their dreams remained dreams
And the number remained distant
Through school and beyond
I didn’t stop dreaming though

Then when I started work
My bosses wanted me to be number one
Yet figures and targets and numbers
Moved away as I kept chasing them

And alas, I didn’t have time
And worked day and night
My life was barren, cup empty
But I didn’t stop dreaming though

Then I met a girl, got married
Now I’ll have few children
Who will live my life and
Achieve my dreams thrust on them
