What Happened? – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” Ray Bradbury

What Happened?

Those child dreams of futures evolving,
what ever happened to them?
One moment consuming and real,
the next parcelled in folders, hidden in
crevices, packed in boxes, filed for 
posterity, should opportunity arise,
did that world fade, did age undo the
mystery of youth once offered, did
maturity  cover over the rabbit holes
of wonderment and leave us suddenly
empty, bereft of possibility?
