I won't need to dream anymore

When i was younger
I used to dream
Dream of big things
Bigger than what i could be

When i was younger
I used to believe
Believe in what i couldn't see
Believing in what i could be

When i am older
I will dream
Dream of the stars in the sky
Dream of the greek Gods

When i am older
I will believe
Believe in the power of love
Believe in the gift of life

When i am old
I won't dream
I won't believe
I will see
what my life has been
i won't need to dream
i won't need to wish
everything i wished for
will have come true
i will have lived a life
full of dreaming and believing
i won't need to dream anymore

Awesome! And mentioning the Greek gods was beyond great, im a lover of Greek mythology. It was good hwow you went from child to adult, but in my opinion, even as an adult with everything you wanted as a child, you would still need to dream. otherwise you could go stagnant for want of nothing. at least, this is what i believe. Great job though!

This is so optimistic!  My poetry always seems to take the grim road of life, but this one is filled with hope.
