When I was young, Younger than I ever was.
I believe in few things Unusual for a little girl to believe in.
I believe in romantic comedies
Like those other kids who believes in Barbie, Cartoons, and Disney.
I watch them more than I watch the local daily news,
cause it gave me hope more than news will ever will.
I believe in love
Like those other kids who believes in 11:11, wish bones,
fortune cookies, dandelions and shooting stars.
I believed in love like it was my genie, my fairy god mother,
who will make all my hopes and dreams come true.
I believe in someone
Like those other kids who believes in Santa Claus, Tooth Fairy,
Easter Bunny and even Jollibee.
I believed that someone will come and prove me that I am right,
someone who will prove me that everything I believe is true.
But as the other kids grew up and they stopped watching Disney,
and not believing in wishful thinking and Santa Claus anymore,
So am I.
At a young age I knew I was a hopeless romantic.
The idea of love and romance, the feeling of first kiss,
of someone holding your hand, hugs and prom
is what makes me anxious about growing up and now…
I knew that I am just plain hopeless. -Aries Eli
