When I Was Young



By Elijah  Collins

When I was young
I wanted to be a princess
in a castle
with glittering walls



Then, I wanted to be an actor
either onstage or on camera
I didn’t mind
as long as the spotlight was on me

Now, I don’t know
maybe I’ll be an actor
or a writer
perhaps even a prince

Maybe I’ll change my mind again soon
but that’s okay
because change is beautiful
change is brilliant
