I had what I needed
My child mind dreamed of dragons and glitter rain.
I sang myself to sleep each night,
A cradlesong like stars flickering
Knowing that someday I'd be everything I wanted to be.

I grew up caring for everything. All I ever did was care about what happened and I tried to make everything right. Once I fully grasped the situation though, I realized that what I was doing was pointless. I couldn't fight like my favorite characters on TV or in my favorite books could. I wasn't fighting someone head on. There wasn't anyone in a red hat that I had to beat and once that was done, everyone would be saved and would live great lives until the next bad guy came around to fight and you had to beat him and it'd be okay again.

Because even though these people had good intentions, it was making things worse as they were making something better. It was giving people in other countries food and shelter and schools while it deprive
