A lad in…

A poem

1993
under Californian sun
for a single week
this song charted at number 1

Aladdin’s theme
was a massive hit
awoken from the longest dream
with a faithful fit

I rode a magic carpet
across a dark and mysterious sky
stronger grew the heartbeat
in the 9 months that passed on by

till cradled on my mother’s belly
a vital cry and limbs uncurled
for I, eyes newly opened
was a lad in A Whole New World

… ”I can show you the world…”🎶🎵

Written for dVerse Poets Pub. Today, we choose a number 1 song, which charted on our birthday, and plug into a moment which resonates with us.
