What do I want to be?
Well, what could I be?
There are many choices in life, you see
And so many different possibilities.
I could be a teacher,
A wizard of shapes and algebra,
Or a scientist that could nurture,
Young minds about the tundra.
I could be an archaeologist,
Unlocking the secrets of the buried,
About the deadly Romans and Viking arsonists,
Who saw stars as maps to read.
I could be a game designer,
For legendary companies like Nintendo,
Creating inspiring, daring or exciting adventures,
For Pikachu, Link or Mario.
I could be the Pythagoras of the 21st century,
Studying the law of shapes and calculus,
Whilst solving equations mentally,
And thoroughly explaining geometry.
I could start or help charities,
To fight against dreadful Ebola or Cancer,
And to support the war refugees,
And to bring them vital food and water.
So, what do I want to be?
Well, I could be any or all of these,
As long as I can make a difference,
All of these are good for me.
