The rigors of this life is known to shrink kids,
As they linger it triggers the dreamer to think big.
Not held down, can’t fail now…there’s so much to see.
When trust is discussed or they mention clutch…it’s me.

I defy sky when I fly and rise above walls,
I’ve seen good and bad & learned to love it all.
Just as courage and will take the troopers far,
Once the dream has begun I’ll go beyond, because I’m a superstar.

A precious name and the best of obtained in all arenas,
When the light is lime, it is there I shine because I am a dreamer.
