This story is rated 4 stars (3 ratings).

by Gwenllian

stop dreaming child
I heard them say so often in my childhood
your head's in the clouds
keep your feet on the ground
I never understood it

what reading again
I heard them say so often in my childhood
yours nose in a book
that's not the real world
I never understood it

stop doodling girl
I heard them say so often in my youth
you live in a fantasy
it's not real
I never understood it

what singing again
I heard them say so often in my youth
It sounds quite pretty
but won't get you a job
I never understood it

dream my sweet child
I heard myself say so often as a mother
the world is your oyster
do what you will
I hope you understand this

so I read then the books
and I sang them the songs
and I drew them funny pictures
and they grew and have flown
with their dreams intact
I'm so glad that they understood it
