"What do you want to be?"
I hate that overrated question
With the inevitable answer.
Because, who knows?
I could explain to them what I want to do.
I could explain how I wish to grow the imagination in the minds of all;
I want to spread creativity and show it through images and words;
I strive to catch the eye in newer ways;
I long for everyone to grasp ideas in their minds and let them grow;
I want to be an influence of creativity and imagination
And I want to show it newer ways.
There isn't actually such a thing as growing out of your imagination;
And I want everyone to realize that...
And when I give that answer, they would give a half smile
And they would slowly nod
And say something like, "Neat."
They would think to themselves that I should reconsider my future.
They would think that I wasn't realistic.
They would think that if I wasn't going to be a lawyer or a doctor or an engineer,
I wasn't going anywhere.
When I become what I long to be,
When I reach that goal,
Their minds will be changed.
