A Dream This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

If someone handed you a dream
A bubble golden bright
You blew a little puff of air
It floated through the night
It drifted past the castle
Where all the people there
Smiled and found new hope that night
And vanquished their despair
If someone pricked that bubble
Stole your hope and dreamed desire
And locked it in a dungeon where
No light can fuel heart’s fire
Would you catapult the castle
With words of ice and flame
Or sit and sigh in some small chair
And call the world to blame?

  Absolutely wonderful! One of the best I've read thus far! I love the message that anyone can sit and be sad in bad times but it takes a real person to do something about it.

Great job! My favorite part was at the end, because you described the two options very well.

I have fallen in love with this piece. It is perfect in its entirety and inspirational magic. I may be a bit melodramatic when it comes to writing, but I'm no liar. You are talented. Never doubt it.
