The Truth Is. . .


My childhood

was spent fighting dragons,

defeating Darth Vader,

constructing a world of bricks, only to have it torn down.


I practiced my Jedi moves.

I danced and sang,

and cast magical spells.


In the night when shadows crept across the walls,

conjuring up a dragon,

or Darth Vader,

and I would banish them all by using the Force.


Now that I’m all grown up, the truth is. . .

The evil emperor, the dragon, the world of bricks.

It’s all real.

Just not quite the way I imagined they would look.
