I Just Wanted
Author: LAR


When I was a child,
I was asked what I wanted to be
when I grew up.

I said that when I grew up,
I wanted to be happy.
I just wanted to be happy.

That was a dream I had,
because I wasn't happy then,
but I could imagine what happy must be like.

So in my innocence,
I said that when I grew up,
I wanted to be happy.

I didn't understand,
how very difficult reaching my dream might be,
how sometimes things just aren't meant to be.

I am learning...
