When I Grow Up

A far-fetched dream on a far-away cloud
An unrelenting heart beats ever so loud

So many hopes and so many desires
Encouraged by a deluge of liars

Goals wide as the ocean times ten
Ambitions strong as an army of 1,000 men

Thoughts that caress the border of the world
A flag of opportunities is unfurled

Potential knows no limit
But the glass ceiling will inevitably be hit

They say we can be anything we want to be,
So why is the decision so hard for me?

I got tingles! That was perfect. Thank you so much, it really got across the feeling of growing up and not knowing what you want to do, or who you want to be. The picture added to the poem. Good choice!
