A LIST OF THINGS TO BE

                                                                                               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?

            Keith Garrett
