Poetry

A Child’s Dream

She tells her mama

she wants to dance like them

on stage

 graceful as a swan

She wants to sing so intensely

that tears fill

the audience below

She wants to be a teacher

who not only teaches

math, science and history

but life lessons as well

She tells her mama

she wants to be a president

to help those kids

starving in the commercials

She tells her mama

she dreams

 to save the world

And her mama tells her

but my dear

you are only

a child
