At 12 I wanted to be a doctor,
Everyone said I can be whoever I wanted to be,
Later, human anatomy didn't interest me anymore.
At 14 the stars called out to me
But someone told me not to dream so big,
Later, I settled for talking to computers instead.
At 16 I was experience my first love,
I wanted to grow up and be his wife,
Later, life took a different turn, for good.
At 18 I only wanted to get my engineering degree,
I dreamed to travel across the world,
Not sure how to, I started by focusing on college.
At 20, I wanted to be an adult,
Get a job and become independent.
Later, I did that for sure.
At 22, I was an engineer now,
I was independent, and had my friends
I stashed the dreams for sometime now.
At 24 I wanted to travel alone,
Start taking chances and find myself
Later, I guess I stopped being scared.
At 26, I travelled half way across the world,
I started checking off things on by bucket list
My life seems to have just started now
At 12 everyone told me,
I can be whoever I wanted to be,
At 26 I still want to be a lot of things,
But first I want to learn how be happy.
