When things don’t turn out as you dreamed as a child, it isn’t always a bad thing right? I mean I had some big, pretty unrealistic, dreams.
Happiness, Health and Wonder
My cupboards will be filled with sweets and chocolaty treats
My car will be a Ferrari, scarlet red with bright leather seats
I will have more money than I can count with an ATM built into my bedroom wall
my house would be huge, 100 meters long and 5 stories tall.
I would have at least 2 jet-skis that would trail behind 2 yachts
and have 2 maids to cook and 2 to clean the pots
I would be a doctor and a lawyer by the time I’m 25
Sending the bad guys to jail, keeping the good ones alive.
As a 10 year old boy, these were the things of which I’d dream
little did I know that the older I got the more impossible it’d all seem.
Not because I couldn’t see myself arguing in court or in theater making an incision
No, because it was all placed in a bubble that was burst by my adult vision.
When that bubble burst, I’d say, around the age of 21
I realized what was important in life and that having money wasn’t all fun.
Just because my vision has changed doesn’t mean that I’ve stopped dreaming
The possibilities I am faced with are still endlessly leaving me beaming
My house may be missing a few stories, not to mention a plot
But Id like to believe that 10 year old me won’t be too disappointed with what I got
My car may not be scarlet red or of any exotic brand
I did manage to get a cool Honda though, low slung, second hand.
I do not feel disappointed that my childhood dreams did not come true
if it did , who knows, I might never have met my beau.
The woman of my dreams, funny, as a boy I never dreamed of her
She came into my life filling it with all I needed – happiness, health and wonder.
