I Was Going to Build an Orphanage

I was going to build an orphanage We would develop our own village Everyone would feel loved We could call everyone mother and father Grandparents would teach skills to us We would learn to play the piano The singers would form a choir The swimmers would learn every kind of stroke There would be a hospital and a rescue center for pets The children would learn empathy, and how to be responsible We would become the world’s happiest family The workers would be enthusiastically kind I built this orphanage every night in my sleep From when I was eight until I was nine Then the orphanage and the dream stopped I want it back, it gave me purpose and joy.
