Mollie Dreams of Being a Princess

 

Mollie Dreams of Being a Princess

 

By Elton Camp

 

Mollie found a tiara at a yard sale

Her dream of wealth likely will fail

 

Her family is neither lazy nor mean

Their modest home is neat and clean

 

With parents at minimum wage employed

A middle-class living cannot be enjoyed

 

They hope one day their ship will come in

But realistically can’t see just how or when

 

But Mollie looks off into the growing night

And imagines a future prosperous and bright

 

Chance of fulfillment is really quite dim

It lies somewhere between none and slim

 

For now, she wears the little crown on her head

For it is by hope and faith that her soul is fed

 

Years from now, her dream will be shattered

May she learn that hope was all that mattered
