I Am

"I want to be a superhero"

My mom smiled and nodded her head

She made me a cape

I would jump off my bed and fly

I was four years old

 

"I want to be an artist"

My mom smiled and nodded her head

She gave me a paint set

I painted almost all day

I was ten years old

 

"I want to be a writer"

My mom smiled and nodded her head

She gave me a notebook

I would write and write and write

I was eighteen years old

 

"I am a writer"

My mom smiles and nods her head

She tells me she knows

I will never stop writing

I am happy
