Side-tracked dreams


It was my dream…
My dream as a child…

That when I grow up,
I would help solve the mysteries of the universe;
Inspire youngsters to become selfless individuals;
Discover that Syrian kid who would cure cancer;
Help that Gazan who would bring peace to the world;
And stand side-by-side with the African to make hunger a thing of the past…

But I’ve lost contact;
And my dreams, side-tracked…

Then my conscience says:
Yes! Seize the day!
But, in another way…
Yes! You only live once!
That’s life!
Doesn’t care about what one wants…

Then again – though some choose to leave a legacy,
Most, like me, will be lost in their vanity…
