Simple Dreams

While I study my mind away,
I think of the empire I will build one day.

The fine art, the paintings, be labeled a tour de force,
I’ll defeat the odds and come out of nowhere, just like a dark horse.

I’ll move onto my next endeavor,
opening the best bakery ever.

Such polar opposites, yet both loved with such a passion.

Raise the stakes and bring the bakery toward prominence,
the confidence received sends my inner fire ablaze.

To think, it all began with a simple dream,
to build my own empire of paint and whipped cream.
