Hope for a Future


I hope to dream a perfect dream,

A dream where my sleep is not disturbed.


I hope to live a successful life,

A life where I can live happily.


I want to give my children things,

My parents could never give to me.


I want to be a change in the world,

A change the world so helplessly needs.


I have the need to prove myself,

A need so strong it hurts at times.


I have the temptation to do bad things,

Since life can be so bad to me.


Addictions can help one to deal with their struggles,

The struggles of insecurities and imperfections. 


One day when the timing is right,

I will have the opportunity.


A perfect and rewarding opportunity,

To live a happy and perfect life.
