“Now that I am a grown up, I always look back and wish that I could visit my childhood’s dreams and fantasies. When I was a kid, I really wanted to be able to ride the bicycle, but we had a tricycle that my older sister used to ride a lot. I was never able to learn to ride a bicycle because I was growing up and my community wouldn’t allow it at the time. Today, at the age of twenty-eight I still have that desire deep in my heart. It has been about a month now that I can ride a bike, but it cannot compensate the fact that I couldn’t ride one as a child. Once our desires die down, they can never be fulfilled. I really wish I could go back to my childhood and play hide and seek with my friends with a blink of an eye and never see these days.”
