Once upon a dream..
If you are like most children, you thought of the magical storyline beginning.
A poet somewhere might see it as the start of a somber memory..
Maybe the distant memory of the song "Once Upon a December" plays through your head when you hear the phrase..
What is Once Upon a dream?
Why does it shake everyone so?
Do we look for the heartfelt and exciting thrill of what a dream could mean?
Maybe it is the idea of taking ourselves from reality for awhile. That distant thought of previous dreams or an old tale.
I can't help but ponder why does this phrase stick through our minds.
It never fails as an intro or perhaps the question to an essay's beginning.
But what is "Once Upon a Dream" really?
If you asked me that is the meaning entirely.
It can be anything. Anything and everything someone might wish it to be. Something a childs heart imagined or maybe even the chorus to a song.
Once Upon a Dream.. how you remain a dream of your own.
Wandering through the minds of millions of hearts, "What is Once Upon a Dream?"
