Those Who Once Dreamed, Teach

Remember the dreams
you once wore proudly
during recess play?

T-shirts which stated:
“Future Astronaut”
or “Rock Star To Be.”

The dreams that soon frayed,
holes along the seams,
lettering faded.

Outgrown, messily
packed in a box, you
gave them to Goodwill.

In-kind donations
to the mothers of
underprivileged youths.

In hope that these kids,
provided for, might
follow their own dreams.
