A Promising Lie

I remember being told that I could be
Anything I wanted if I tried.
A promising lie,
The philosophy of open doors.

Anything I wanted if I tried!
Actress! Writer! Astronaut!
The philosophy of open doors,
Wide vistas and endless roads.

Actress, writer, astronaut ...
Policeman? Fireman? King?!
Wide vistas and endless roads
Have boundaries and limits.

Policeman, fireman, king.
Childish archetypes
Have boundaries and limits.
Is it a crime to find an ordinary path?

Childish archetypes
Collapse. But the weights of adulthood also
Have boundaries and limits.
A promising lie.
