When we were young we had dreams.
Dreams of the future.
Dreams of who we would be.
Dreams of what we wanted to achieve.
But yet here we are older, dreamless, and empty.
What happened to our careless happiness?
What happened to our young dreams?
What happened to our hopes of who we could be?
How could we have let that go and become older, dreamless, and empty?
