Where Does It End? | Poem

As a child, I wished and prayed

I believed in a future I was sure would happen

I got crushed along the way

Picked myself up, dusted off and dreamt some more

Always within my reach and yet beyond my grasp

This illusive perfection I’d come to crave so

Waiting and still waiting

Through hurt, disappointment, pain and loss

I wait and I still wait

Just where does it end?
