I’m not a famous performer or artist or thief,
I don’t slay dragons on the weekend or play pool in a bounce house,
I can’t fly to the moon and back in one day and still have time to make world peace,
but I can listen to my favorite songs.
I can’t count cards and I can’t un-crack an egg,
I can’t jump so high I touch the clouds and I’m never going to be a circus monkey,
I’m never going to meet a ghost, a vampire, or even the loch ness monster,
but I can enjoy cosmic brownies.
I don’t play the piano or know the secret to forever,
I’m not a magician and I definitely can’t pull a rabbit out of a hat,
I won’t ever be a mermaid and I can’t beat light in a race,
but I can read a good book.
I’m not a famous novelist or a straight A student,
I didn’t define gravity or the meaning of life,
I won’t ever meet Einstein or Lincoln or the guy who made the best thing since sliced bread,
but I am going to college.
