Anything You Want To Be

I wanted to be a doctor, or a
Photographer, or a
Psychiatrist
I wanted to engineer societies,
Roads,
Something great
I wanted to nurse people,
Animals, and
Wild things
I wanted to write,
Act, and
Sing

“You can be anything you want to be!”

But–
Without
Status,
Money, or
Scholarships
I became the only thing I could afford:

Me

And that adds up to
A
Whole
Lot
Of

Nothing.
