Once I was,
This little girl,
So curious,
To see this world.

I had big dreams,
Now can't you see,
But I guess those dreams,
Weren’t meant for me.

In my dreams,
Life was a dance,
With lots of loving,
And romance.

There were no such things,
As fear or sorrows,
Only beautiful,

But a dream is a dream,
Reality is life,
No one stays forever,
In paradise.



I was 17 when I wrote this so it’s not new. I just had it spellchecked and reposted!

I believe the little girl of 17 writing about her dreams is still alive and has not given up on the possibility that her dreams may yet come true.A dream does not die I think I heard someone say only the dreamer and you are far too young and talented to die so let's wait for your dreams to happen.

Never give up your dreams. See it the way you want it to be in your imagination, and it will happen. (From the "bible" of goal setting.)

Well done at 17.
