She dreamt of being an astronaut, a teacher,

She imagined going to work every day,

Making a difference.

Now all she does is

Wonder where the days went.

What happened to her aspirations?

Dreams vanished, reality woke her up.

She forgot how to smile, how to feel.

How to want to live for something,

Rather than just live.

Becoming a zombie, like the rest of the world.

That was her biggest fear. Her biggest mistake.

Where did it go wrong? She remembers

When dreaming was encouraged, not farfetched.

Now the only dreams she has is in her


Before waking up to another meaningless


Repeating the same meaningless routine.

She remembers when she was allowed to dream

Now all she wishes for is sleep.
