When I was young, I had wonderful dreams of what I would become and what I’d do. As I grew a little older, my dreams changed and took other forms. I think it is almost the same with every one!
Don’t we have lofty dreams of appearing as a white knight in armour trying to slay the dangerous fire-breathing dragons? Alas, all our fantasies are just like vapour. They vanish into thin air!
Hence, the poem below which I wrote many years back. It consists of 11 lines with 36 words in geometrical diamond shape:
Filled with air,
Rise higher than aspiration;
Lofty ideals with great expectations:
Bubbles begin bursting one by one,
Falling back to earthly plane;
Awaken to life’s reality,
Grasping impossible dreams,
