It was a sunny day of June, and I was sitting on my porch. The only sound I heard was the one of the singing birds and the rustle of the sea, which was very close to me. Nothing could have ruined my day. I started to daydream about a perfect world, with beautiful weather, opportunities, great people, fantastic friends. No more earthquakes, floods, violence, and other disasters.
In the perfect world, there wouldn`t be helpless people anymore. All of us would be equally strong, healthy, respected, and loved. It`s like the cat, which sees itself as a powerful, beautiful lion, being able to do whatever it wants, without being judged by appearances. If all of us were equal, we wouldn`t have to worry about our look, our powers, or our influence on the others. We would all stick together, creating a better world to live in, with peace and love.
Furthermore, I would create my own life, without depending on faith. I`d sculpture my own ball of the future, and I would count on love, friendship, joy, and health.
The more I was thinking about my perfect world, the closer I got to it. Soon, Ive become a part of it, and I could see all the things around me differently. I noticed a lot of open windows that let me see the sky, which was extraordinary blue, with white clouds. That was my way, with all the opportunities knocking at my door, and the clouds were my support: my friends, my family, and my teachers, who would help me raise up. I could always rely on them, no matter what. I know they would always be there for me.
I continued to dream about my perfect world. When I woke up, I realised how much I`d like to bring all those things in my real life. We cannot have a perfect life, though. We will always meet disappointment and failures, but we just have to deal with them the way that brings us to happiness, because this is all that matters.
