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.
