Bruno sat outside the theatre playing his music with pots and pans; he was very filthy. Ever since morning, he had been playing; he had got nothing, he knew he wasn’t going to get anyone who would be so generous and offer few change. He wasn’t out there just for money, he was out there because he had to help out for his family. Dad and Mum often use to go to work, which meant Bruno would be looked after by his grandparents. Just when, he was about to leave a man had come up to him, he slipped his hand into his pockets and pulled out couple of change. Bountifully he placed the change into Bruno’s cup. Bruno never thought he would actually get some change until now. He looked directly at the cup and thanked the man. He had thought his parents were going to be so proud of him.

Grand dad and grand mum stared. “Mum look what I’ve got look.” Bruno spoke to his mum. His mum was still, she didn’t even move an inch. “Bruno, your parents have been divorced.” His grand dad spoke.

To people they can be just an unreachable goal
Or an unattainable desire.
They can beacons of hope
Or just simply just a wish you hope that comes true one day.
To some people they seem like silly thoughts
And things we should not waste our time on.
To others its they are only silver of hope they have lost all hope.
It can mean to others their goals or even how they want life to be.
Or just something that occurs when you fall asleep
Dreams were the only thing that I had to…
