Goodbye My Castle

Abandoned doll house on a New York City sidewalk.

Forgotten memories in every room,

Now sidewalk trash under a rising moon.

The imagination needs a place to play,

Until life gets real and there is rent to pay.

The cost of growing up is dire indeed,

As we all abandoned our childish needs.

We live to work and stay afloat,

Burying our dream as we dig our moat.

Goodbye to innocence and life without hassles,

Goodbye to you, goodbye my castle.
