Mollie Dreams of Being a Princess

Mollie Dreams of Being a Princess

By Elton Camp

Mollie found a tiara at a yard sale
Her dream of wealth likely will fail

Her family is neither lazy nor mean
Their modest home is neat and clean

With parents at minimum wage employed
A middle-class living cannot be enjoyed

They hope one day their ship will come in
But realistically can’t see just how or when 

But Mollie looks off into the growing night
And imagines a future prosperous and bright

Chance of fulfillment is really quite dim
It lies somewhere between none and slim

For now, she wears the little crown on her head
For it is by hope and faith that her soul is fed

Years from now, her dream will be shattered
May she learn that hope was all that mattered
