My one promise I made to myself when I was young
was to never allow myself to grow up,
never to lose my wonderment,
my passion for the world,
to never give up daydreaming of being swept up and becoming the protagonist in a story of another world,
to be told I had secret powers and be taken to a land unlike my own to a place where I am special,
to never lose my imagination,
to maintain my excitement to wake up.
To start my day with my only intention being to love life.
I am so afraid that I broke this promise.
