Wildest dreams, freedom unleashed;
All that surrounded me was a carefree air.
Protected skin, Princess akin;
Until one day, all of this was to be found nowhere.
It all felt like a dream;
For all I did was imagine stuff.
Until one day I realized, it was all just a lie,
And now, I wait desperately for someone to wake me up.
It all felt like a child’s play;
Everything, so free and fair.
Until one day, all that mist cleared,
And lo! I was just a part of a nightmare.
It all felt like a fairy tale;
Everything majestic, with nothing messed up.
Until one day I realized;
I have grown up.
Oh, how I would believe the unbelievable,
And imagine the unimaginable.
Until one day, I realized,
No one would be there to pick me now, if I stumble.
I could never decide, then, what I wanted to be;
For, Everything seemed fun and games.
Until one day, I grew up and realized;
I wanted to be a child again.
