Willy Wonka’s Protégé

Pain.  Tears.  Horror.  Shock.  Heartbreak.  Sadness.  Joy.  Humiliation.  Embarrassment.  Disappointment.  Confusion.  Loneliness.  Anger.  Wrath.  Scorn.  Worry.  Fear.  Jealousy.  Hatred.  Disgust.  Loathing.  Love.  Lies.

These are the words of my distant past.

I then found new words, mixed in with some old ones:

Adulation.  Jealousy.  Love.  Lust.  Lies.  Confusion.  Joy.  Safety.  Happiness.  Sadness.  Disappointment.  Spontaneous.  Surprising.  Forever.  Sexy.  Loveable.  Appreciated.  Grateful.  Beautiful.

but I had to delete the most important one: 


Now I have a new dictionary and these are my words:

Content.  Happy.  Free.  Loved.  Appreciated.  Responsible.  Eternal.  Successful.  Mother.  Fulfilled.

I am the master of my own destiny.

I am the dreamer of dreams*.

* Willy Wonka: We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.
