"Echoes of Tomorrow"

In the quiet of the night, where shadows dance,

And stars adorn the sky's expanse,

I find myself in tales untold,

Where dreams take flight and hearts unfold.

Through screens and wires, it enthralls,

In its embrace, I find my place,

A future leader, poised to grace.

With each word spoken, each page turned,

A symphony of lessons learned,

In the tapestry of stories spun,

I see the battles yet to be won.

For in the magic of the bedtime tale,

I find the strength to never fail,

To rise above and claim my fate,

And chart a course, bold and great.

So let us gather, one and all,

And heed the storyteller's call,

For in these stories, we find our light,

Guiding us through the darkest night.
