A Family Story

By , arvada, CO
"What are you going to be when you grow up" they asked
"I'm guna be a Princess" i said at the age of 4
"You're going to be a great princess!" They'd say back with a smile.
"how do you know" and They stayed silent


5 years later when They asked the same thing I'd say
"I wanna be a singer! I'm really good!"
"I know you'll make it!" They'd reply.
"How do you know?" They just sat there wonder in there eyes

6 years longer They'd ask me again
"I wanna be a doctor they always end rich!" I'd say
"Only the good ones so you better study hard, but I'm sure you can make it." They'd answer
"But how do you know?" I protested again, "How do you know?"
"I just do! Trust me."

3 years later They'd ask once more
"I wanna be an author. I'll make work. Life'll be great." I said.
"How do you know?" They asked me.
"Because you taught me to believe.
You taught me to believe in
Santa Clause and magic fairies when I was four.
You thought me to belive in
Good People and and family when I was 9.
You taught me to believe in
Music and nature when I was 15.
And You taught me to believe in
Love and hard work, Thank you Mom!"
