What do you
Want to be
When you grow up?

You want to be famous?
Get real!
You need to be born into fame.

Who ever heard
Of a nobody
Becoming a name
Everybody knows?

And so,
Society laughs
In your face,
Crushing another dreamer.

The author's comments:
I want to be somebody when I get older, someone that will make a difference. Unfortunately, every time I try telling someone what my dreams are, they laugh at me and tell me to be realistic.
