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
