Pick and Choose

"What do you want to do?"

"What do you want to be?"

"Pick right now, at only eighteen."

I don't know the answers

Maybe I never will

I want to do it all

I want to create

To make beautiful art

To incite feelings with words

To spark change with passion

To improve the world with my mind

"The arts will get you nowhere

"But if you must..."

Pick only one?

Just one?

No, never!

I will make art

That pours out my words

I will use beauty

To create a change

That will advance a cause

I can do it all

And I will
