Childhood Imaginations

Childhood Imaginations

A Poem by J.R. Asor_28

Remember when we were little?
The crazy thoughts we think of
We would sit in a circle
And share them all
Laughter would fill the field
It would go on and on and on
Almost all day long
Such great imaginations
Priceless fantasies
We'd all achieve with great expectations
That would last for centuries

I remembered how we wanted to be 
A superhero with extraordinary abilities
The U.S. president for as long as we want
A soldier that would serve for the country
A pilot, so that we can travel for free
The God of the Gods, so we can strike lightnings against our enemies
And invent a remote that would take us back in time
Even though it would take all our time

Crazy imaginations of what we want to be
The impossibilities of all impossibilities 
But if we believe, it may become reality
Nothing can stop us of who we want to be

I greatly enjoyed this poem of yours. I know a poem to be a good one when it rapidly inspires me to write another poem somewhat like it. You may have this inspired poem as a gift to keep as your own since you were the muse who provoked it:

Great Expectations

As small children long ago,
we would gather round
a bright campfire’s crackling glow
with tales to expound.

Here our fantasies would grow
into wonders newly found
whereby most of them would show
expectations without bound.

Seriously. People should just fly with their dreams and not listen to the terrible things society and parents tell them they can or can't do.

Thank you for sharing :)

You are quite the writer. I like how you capture the moment. I remember wanting to be Superman when everyone else wanted to be a doctor or vet, I was 6 then. An excellent read and write.

What a great little poem :) An interesting and nostalgic view of childhood, you're writing style feels a little bit like it's restrained...I feel like perhaps your style might lend itself more to spoken word poetry rather than to the written form, simply because you have a style and subject matter with people can relate to...Here's what I mean:
If you get the chance, listen to this guy :) I feel like this poem you've written could be stretched out into something similar...But I really enjoyed reading it, well done :) !
