A Child With A Dream

A Child with A Dream with so little to see, homeless on the street with no food to eat… no money in her pocket and nowhere to go she was A Child with a Dream and she never let it go. A Child with a Dream with nothing to see but the concrete she had as she laid down to go to sleep, nothing to say and nothing to do just A Child with A Dream can she make it through? A Child with A Dream who wanted the most to make it to the top as she sat by the light post, the concrete was cold and it was dark outside A Child with A Dream as she watched the night go by. A Child with A Dream with no more to do but to count the stars as they moved. A Child with A Dream with nothing to do but wish one day she will meet a friend or two, as she grew up she knew it was the end but  A Child with A Dream never gave in, remembering her past as the days went by a friend approached her and was ready to cry.  A Child with A Dream saw her crying but never give in she kept on trying. Her friend came up wondered what happened to all the good times that made her start laughing, looking back her friend said why, why did you run away from them as they were packing? Looking back and wondering why A Child with A Dream just sat there and cried, tears running down her face not knowing why she said her family hated her but she didn’t know why. A Child with a Dream put her head up and her friend said don’t ever give up. A Child with a Dream looking back as her wish came true but was it luck or did she know I never would give up? A Child with a Dream looking at the skies, her friend said I was looking for you do you know why? A Child with a Dream answered no. A Child with a Dream looked at her friend and A Child with a Dream said you wished I was with them, her friend answered yes but do you know why?  A Child with a Dream had nothing to do but look her in the eyes. Her friend said I know, A Child with a Dream said her family wished she wasn’t there but her friend said I am your sister do you know I cried as you left and said goodbye? A Child with a Dream looked up in shock and had nothing to say but will you stay if I never give up? Her sister looked up and said come on we will never give up we will be on our way home and you will be able to make up... A Child with a Dream never gave in she went home and her parents were shocked to see her grown up and ready for them. They sat her down with food and water but A Child with a Dream could care no longer… her parents wondered why A Child with a Dream said you wished I left and her parents were confused and they were fighting everyday as the divorce got heated each and every day. The parents felt bad and never let her go as she went to school and her friends were happy and didn’t want to see her go… as the years went by she had a dream to one day help those who had A Child with a Dream.
