Ask children what they want to be,
the answers will vary tremendously…
From the first colonists living on Mars,
to regal princesses or movie stars.
Nothing can dampen their super powers,
or a ray of sunshine through purple flowers.
They fly by a fancy, lives so simple,
worlds of magic until the first pimple.
A place to long for but never return,
Doomed forever to strain, deny, and yearn.
Briefly we can glimpse this precious treasure,
that we seek above all, beyond measure.
To look once again at the stars above,
and see a world of magic and love.
