She Wanted

The child wanted to be an artist until she saw one with talent.

The child wanted to be a teacher, but her slight lack of patience would destroy her.

She wanted to sing on stage, but she could not imagine her life of fame locked in a cage.

She wanted to go after a communications degree, despite affirmations. 

She decided she would break away from the "why not" chains and do something for herself for a change.
