I was going to be Batman or Spidie or Superman,

Not Wonder Women

I was going to be a Knight of the Round Table

I was going to be a Dragon Rider,

I was going to be a famous Trumpeter, Louie Armstrong

I made it to first chair

I was going to be a Doctor, or a Lawyer, or a Spaceman

I was going to be a journalist,

I was going to be a Gymnast

Competing with Mary Lou Retton

I was going to be Dianna Ross and the Temptations

I can’t sing

I was going to be an Adventurer

I wanted to be Indiana Jones

I was going to be a Cop, a Fire Fighter, a Paramedic

I did that

I was going to be a writer

And discovered I could be a novelist

I was never going to be a hero

Then I found out I already am
