Different Dreams

I used to dream

Of being someone else, not me.

I used to dream

Of swimming up and not downstream,

A beauty in my fantasy,

Wealthy and famous, not like me.

I used to dream.

Teenage me

Now I am me,

Contented now, life is brighter.

Now I am me:

Older, experienced and free,

A wife, a mother and a writer,

Dreams are reachable, I’m wiser.

Now I am me.

Me now
