Childhood Dreams

I dreamt of being a princess one day
One who was independent
Who defied her traditional duties
And traded in her tiaras and dresses for strength and courage

I dreamt of being a teacher one day
Playing ‘’school’’ with my siblings
Standing in front of my them at nearly five feet tall
Spreading my limited knowledge to them

I dreamt of being a pediatrician one day
Swapping my toy stethoscope for an actual one
Working with rowdy kids
And getting nauseous from the pungent smell of blood

I dreamt of being a mother one day
Who cares and provides for her children
Going sleepless nights when they are crying
And comforting them during those trying times

Most importantly, I dream of being a strong-willed person
Holding my head high in the face of adversity
And living life one dream at a time.

I love this! Unique idea, and good play on dreams. I would have chosen a different photograph, but all in all the poem is amazing. Beautiful job. Please read, rate, and comment on my poems! Thanks!
