My mom was undecided
On what she wanted to do
Instead of picking a profession
She kept trying something new.
She wanted to pursue acting
Every little girl’s dream
But in the world of show business
Few stars find success and gleam.
She attempted to work behind the camera
To be a director or a writer
She soon discovered she hated them all
And studied to be a graphic designer.
After amassing quite a large paper pile
She realized it was not worthwhile
Drawing for eight hours a day
Was not her kind of life style.
In the end she chose a job
That dealt with people, not art
But to this day she uses her skills
To piece together kids’ crafting parts.
