As a child you’re told to follow your dreams of the impossible and shoot for the stars, be all you can be
As teenager you’re told to grow up and be realistic, dreams are for kids
As an adult you’re told to get a stable job, to settle down, to have kids
As a parent you’re telling your kids to dream, only for you to later crush that dream as your parents did to you
As a person you’ve come full circle and realise you wished you’d lived your dreams from when your were a child that you never did
As a life lived, you’ve wasted it.
