When Toys Were The Subject of My Dreams

(First published April, 2014. – Owen)

When toys were the subject of my dreams
I was a happy child, indeed;
With flying ships and laser beams
My every thought, my drink and feed

Reality soon came to call
And I crestfallen, most of all
With feeling dull reality
That I would no one special be

I had to find the strength I lacked
In all, the self’s more than it seems;
I knew that I could fly from back
When toys were the subject of my dreams
