Working at the local grocery store
Bagging groceries like it’s my life
As I bag, I dream of the future
What could life be like if it were perfect?
I would wake up in my lavish house
I would drive my exorbitant car
I would arrive at the job of my dreams
I would greet my patients
I would put on my white coat
I will place my stethoscope around my neck
I will pick up my clipboard and make my rounds
What is my job you may ask?
Will I wake up every day with a smile on my face?
I know that this is where I belong
This is my calling
Then I snap back to present day
I am at the local grocery store
I am bagging groceries
I am not going to be here forever
This is just another stepping stone towards reality
I am on my way to the rest of my life
