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

    I loved this one. The rhymes, the dreams all dress up the bitter reality of the education system so well!

    Hahaha, nice one, one can’t help dreaming when the periods are long and the break seems too far. Add to the playground outside inviting for a game.
