“I want to be an engineer,” he said
“I want to be a veterinarian,” she voiced
“I want to be a fireman,” he exclained
“What do you want to be?”
What do I say?
How should I answer?
What will the others think?
Do I really want to be that?
Or do I want to be something else?
I didn’t know then but I do know now
I want to do something magical
Something spectacular and inspiring
Full of action and suspense
I want to be a hero
I want to go on a journey
To learn and better myself
I want to live in a world where the impossible is possible
I want to change the past and design the future
What job can do all this?
A movie star?
Maybe a police officer?
Good guesses but incorrect
A writer is what I’m going to be
An author, a screenwriter, a poet
Just a few of the many hats I will wear
Writing is my passion
Writing is my dream
