As I lie here waiting to be used, I think of what I will be come, A novel, maybe a flyer for a cute puppy who got too adventurous, or how about a huge contract for a big movie star like Robert Patterson. I like all the above, then I realize all the things I could be come that aren’t so great like, a newspaper, because newspapers gets tossed then some dogs are trained to get the paper, and that means sharp teeth going into the words I would bare.

I have done nothing with my life all I have done is play the waiting game when I could have met a ms. paper and have little papers running around. There was so much I wanted to do; now I can’t. I wanted to travel around the world, but now I can’t. Why must it end this way? I rather be…
