A LIST OF THINGS TO BE
Never an astronaut, dancing slowly upon the moon,
Flying in a jet across the sky, no, not did I ever fly.
A football star throwing the ball far, a dream that won’t be,
Under the lights, a victory on a Super Bowl night.
What is it like to be a movie star pretending to be many things,
Known everywhere, this is not what I was born to be.
An Olympic star, a racer of cars, I wanted to be but that’s not me,
A great writer, a hero of sort would be something I might be.
A rescuer of the down and out, a conqueror of homelessness,
I may not be an Einstein of genius, I am good enough for me,
A list of things to be, how much can one man need?
