Childhood drawings
Dear reader my name is…
I am a… well that’s not important.
Who am I is not as important as who you think you are would you be able to answer me?
Who are you?
We forgot who we are we lost the pieces, of what makes us, us.
We become occupations and job titles
We lost ourselves
We lost ourselves between the sheets and bent legs.
Between hell-bent fists of fathers
Seeking it in the missing hugs of mothers.
Lost ourselves like drifting messages trapped in a bottle. Losing our words because the flood is to strong.
Life and society mutating our dreams from the, I am best to average to ok to as long as I just pass.
Who we are is not any more as important as what we do.
What we do is not as important as surviving.
Surviving is all we need to do
Surviving just getting by no more deep breaths
Drowning in the pressures, of this is what you’re supposed to.
Handicapping our dreams suffocating our hope
But its ok survive survive get by get the day done
From sunrise it’s a race to just pass through the day just making sunset to go sleep not dream
Just to wake up and repeat.
The cost of this living is it’s at the expenses of our dreams.
Your dreams is delicate flowers don’t let it be plucked by someone ells it will only wilt in their hands.
Its rose buds on the stems of your fingers, its sun flowers in your eyes so turn towards the sun and see how you can shine.

Remember when you were a child you would draw the sun in the corner of a page with shades on
You did that because you knew the sun looked down at us and said dayum these children shine bright.
Find that kid find him
And find the answer to who you are
Listen to what this lost kid would tell you
You are Beautiful because you are you are strong because you are
You are the fastest because you are. Life a miracle because it is
Magic you got it,

Hi I am Richard McDonald I am a poet a fighter man I am a fire breathing dragon I can fly
Children aren’t naive they just have so much faith it scares people out there shoes
Shoe laces yes we could not tie them but we Knew who we were and we weren’t afraid to dream.
I guess that’s why Jesus called kids closer He wanted to deal with real people.
Now tell me Little Greg Little Lisa
Wonderful Beautiful Children who are you?

When I was a child I wanted to be a singer or an actress, but then llife took me on other paths. Yet, I´m proud of what I´ve done and seen. I don´t want to be a singer anymore, because Iñve drank and smoked a good bit. Yet, I still have my aim. I don´t call it dream, because it´s something I´m striving for hard enough. I wish to be a writer and I wish to share what I write with others to know whether I´m on the right path or not and I´m very well at it whether it shines or rains. Thanks for having remind us about dreams and aims as yours is a good piece.

Thank you I believe our dreams is Gods whispers to us and Our purpose, I believe we can think one way but if we listen and look back all starts making sense and we see what our true dreams are and it will make us happy and that makes God happy. My dreams is to be a poet and a writer and many other things. But thank you for the beautiful comments. Please keep dreaming. Peace and Love
