What I Want to Be

Should I become a brain surgeon
saving lives with skillful hands
maybe conduct an orchestra
on a podium I’ll stand

Pilot of a fighter jet
protecting our native land
Admiral of a navy fleet
the top guy who’s in command

I could become a professor
teaching those seeking to learn
Perhaps a great politician
solving issues of concern

For any of these to happen
I’ll have to let go of me
“When I let go of what I am
I become what I might be”
