Futures Past

]http://dailypost.wordpress.com, DP, DP Challenge

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? How close or far are you from that vision?


When I was little I was going to grow up to be a doctor

But that didn’t happen as my mind was deterred

Then later I wanted to become a mom

But I thought, I’m not married so how dumb

When in high school I did reach

The conclusion that I wanted to teach

I wanted to be a therapist for teens

I’d help them find a way to not be mean

But in the end no college degree

What was going to happen to me

I ended up helping a sick old soul

And this took up those college holes

And now today I think I am done

Caring for others much more than one

Trying to open closed doors today

Trying hard to find my way.

  1. Awesome, Terry! I wanted to be a singer, dancer, secretary and so much more, but in the end I was only busy to find myself….lol…well, I’m on my way to be me finally 😉 Have a great weekend 🙂


  2. I have a list of what I wanted to be too. But – I now know that simply being me is all that I could be,,,and – now I just try to work on being a happy me. Some days are not so easy though. Life….


    • That is the interesting thing about life; it isn’t easy. Staying true to who you were meant to be in this world is a challenge for sure, but I keep working at it. Hugs my friend
