Yearning to become someone better,
That is one wish all children make.
But what happens?
When some wishes
Turn into ashes;
Without even trying.
Then all get lost.

How mysterious when hopes
Turn into silly jokes,
When faith fades away and
There's no other last time,
For you to settle what went wrong.
