Every Child has childhood dreams and it sees his or her future through them. These dreams are sweet and soft but few of them really reach or achieve those dreams in their lives. This poem is a depiction of that failure in the life of many people.

Childhood dreams

When I was a child,
Having soft and tender age.
Life was easy for me,
As there was no maze.

I found everything nice,
From parents supportive eyes.
My ambitions soared high,
Up to the blue skies.

I was very sure of my future,
Laced with all nice things.
Like a bird in paradise,
Does nothing but only sings.

Soon I turned in an adult,
And failed in love miserably.
I tried my luck in sports,
But that was not my cup of tea.

I was much educated and,
Had degree in humanities.
But wherever I applied jobs,
I was told to have more abilities.

Now I am self employed,
And running my own business thread.
The world is too competitive and,
I am struggling for my daily bread.


Life is like that. We have many aspirations in our mind when we are a child but the reality of life is different. The world is a strange place. There is competition everywhere and we have to fight continuously.
