What do you want to be when you grow up?
You could be an artist who paints trees of green and gold.
You could be a scientist who studies mildew and mold.
You could be a dancer who counts steps from one to eight.
You could be a writer who tells stories of love and fate.
You could be an archeologist who studies remains from the past.
You could be a fisherman who sets off the perfect cast.
You could be a teacher who shows kids how to grow up.
You could be a vet who helps kittys, birds, and pups.
You could be a doctor who helps people to feel better.
You could be a news reporter who tells us about the weather.
Above all you must remember that getting a job takes time. Here are a few things to think about and to also keep in mind:
You need to stay in school and learn all there is to know.
You must work hard behind the scenes. It's not always about the show.
You must set goals for yourself, then tell yourself "I can."
You must work well with a team. There's no such thing as a "one-man-band."
You should be kind to others (and they will be kind to you).
Quit sitting there wishing. Go and do do do do do!
If you want it, go get it.
