I Could Be

December 17, 2008
By Marissa Goldstein, New Hyde Park, NY

I could be a lawyer,
a doctor,
a cowboy,
or a princess.
I could live in a cabin in the mountains
or in a beach house in the tropics.
I could be a horse,
or a lion,
or an owl soaring above the trees.
I could even be a fish swimming in the deep blue sea.
But why would I want to be something I'm not?
When I could just be who I am
and who I am means a lot!

I think this is really good. I love the overall message and how instead of revealing the main point right away, you revealed it at the end. Well done!!!!!!!!!!!!
