via Daily Prompt: Jolt

Dreams I have always enjoyed

A World within Worlds

Where Logic simply has no hold

And imagination runs bold

Sometimes a fairy in bright colours was quite a sight

Sometimes a devil filled me with fright

Sometimes I was jumping between the stars

Sometimes I was pole vaulting between bars

Sometimes a song would sing itself

Sometimes a dialogue would repeat itself..

All was perfectly fine…

Till such time… the teachers booming voice

shrieking out my name… gave me such a Jolt

I would literally want to Bolt

Instead I stood quivering

Just Like a Dolt

And often wonder…Why in the World

Are Kids often told…

Follow your Dreams

Which I jolly well Did

And Hit Gold !!


This post is dedicated to all those colourful Dreamers in school
