I don't want to grow up! I remember being 8 years olf and being so excited to get older now I just want time to rewind to a time where my daddy was still alive, where my little brother didn't hate me, to where my sister still lives with us. and we can all go trick or treating together and we all sit down and watch the nightmare before x-mas and halloween Charlie Brown! Even Hallween town and twitches! I can drop my candy a hundred times and my big sister can help me pick them back up and when we get home we can all sit together and trade candy while daddy checks for poison and steals about half our chocolates and mommy let's us stay up late! and watch the Simpsons specials and eat kentucky fried chicken without being sick the next day!
but i know that's not going to happen... I am 16 and getting my GED so i can go to art school, my daddy died of cancer when i was 11, my mom had 4 other children with my step dad and started drinking, my big sister moved in with her boyfriend, my brother dislikes me very much so now... I'm all alone. I have no one... I just want to go back to that time. Is that really too much to ask?
XP I wanted to be a doctor , veterinarian , astronaut , biologist , firefighter , and slushie maker XD But now I do believe ^w^ That is so I choose to be a writer, I can be all of them just the same XD So I guess that didn't change much~
When I was little I said I had no clue what I wanted to be........My mom asked me again the other day and, I gave the same answer.....She freaked because I'm 17 and graduated highschool and have to know what I'm doing with my life by now so I can go to collage or get the right job to get started.....This coming from the woman who lives off her mother's pension and has no problem with her way of life........I hate how I've applied everywhere around where I live, and it's still my fault that no one wants a 17 year old girl with no expiriance because no one will hire me.......It's an evil circle of doom.......
wow, I really, really love this poem! To be honest, I always thought of giving up on my dream to become an artist because they make too little money, not enough to be content. But after reading this I feel inspired again, like how I was in the past. Words cannot describe how glad I am to come across this poem, because it truly helped me. Thank you.~
Good for you! I can't believe she actually said that! I've changed my mind a couple of times, as I got a better sense of myself, but I've never lost my ambition. I've always believed that you're not really living unless you love your job. I'm still at University, but I'm getting my BSc in Zoology, so that someday I can be a researcher and adventurer, at the forefront of conservation and science, making radical discoveries about reptiles and amphibians as a famous Herpetologist, like Steve Irwin.
I love this poem because I have been through that I first wanted to be a scientist and my mom thought that was great but when I started to really learn how to draw and decided instead I wanted to do concept art that was not good enough and I had to change or else I would never hear the end of it. So instead of going to an art school I decided I will practice and make it happen on my own while going to school for computer science until I can get my chance at some concept art. Anyways back to your poem it is actually what inspired me to keep my dream alive so thank you
I love that last line, I'm gonna start a band someday and probably do art and photography on the side. I've never let my self think that I can't do it because if I can't then I may have nothing to look forward to for the rest of my life.
Mostly the reason for my changes are because I've come up with better ideas. I used to want to be a game designer. Then I found that taking Japanese would be better. I then wanted to be a translator. Then I started getting into acting. Afterwards I wanted to be a voice actor. Then I realized that it's not all it's cracked up to be. I then focused on becoming a writer. Then I realized that I'm not sufficiently dark enough to possibly become a bestseller. Right now I'm on teaching English to Japanese students. Let's see how long that lasts.
This is a really wonderful poem. I wish i can do what i want to do when i grow up. I hope i can work with things i find intresting and fun, not only so i can earn money for a living. sorry, for the long coment and i hope i spelled everything rigt!
