Out of Reach
My parents always had high hopes for my future.
They told me I could be great.
They said I could spread my wings and fly,
Because they had high hopes for me.
I had dreams for my future.
I dreamed I could be anything
In reality I just wanted to be something.
My parents expected me to know what I wanted.
They raised me to dream…
But did they let me hope too much?
I wanted so much and dreamed of even more.
Now I’m stuck with my reality,
Wanting, hoping, and expecting my dreams to be out of reach.
