Astronaut or ballerina,
those are a bit too much for me.
I want to share my passions
and this job is the key:
I want to be a teacher,
to show others the past.
I want to share how ancient questions
will inevitably last
long after we have struggled
to find a single reason
for all the cheating and the lying,
the wars and all the treason.
Our past paints a picture
larger than we can comprehend.
And this picture, rather, this mural
truely does not lend
itself to easy answers
like this is right or that,
but the truth that there aren't easy answers
isn’t bad. In fact,
it’s my favorite side of all of this,
the room there is to grow
and expand on all the gray spots
because there is no way to know
if you're right or wrong
as new discoveries come to be known.
Unfortunately to make this dream a reality,
I could really use a loan.
