Mom tells me to be a pharmacist.
Dad tells me to be a doctor.
Sister tells me to become a nurse.
Ms. Kalus tells me to be a teacher
Doggie tells me to become a vet.
God tells me to become a pastor's wife.
What should I tell myself?
Become:
A human without flesh,
A car without gas,
A dragon without fire,
A bird without wings,
A kid with no dreams,
But wait,
How can humans survive without flesh?
How can a car go without gas?
What is a dragon without fire?
What's kid with no dreams?
Well how about,
A writer, with some passion.

Listen to your dreams, not theirs.

Hey I was browsing Teen Ink and I came across your poem. It's cute, I like it a lot. Short and to the point.
