I wanted to be a doctor,
As doctors cure the illness,
But they can't bring the dead back,
Nor define their wellness.
I wanted to be a pilot,
As pilots fly high,
But at the end of the day,
It's in the earth we have to lie.
I wanted to be a singer,
As music brings comfort,
But it can't soothe the poor,
Nor can it clean their unwanted dirt.
I wanted to be an actor,
As acting let's you explore various characters,
But amidst them you forget your own identity,
Which can't be brought back by any director.
I wanted to be a writer,
As writer's pen is stronger than the sword,
But the words seemed to lose meaning,
As soon as they flowed out of my mind's cupboard.
I wanted to be a teacher,
As teachers educate each and all,
But no education can teach you the greatest lessons of life,
It has to be acquired from experienced fall.
I have now decided to be a human first,
With all perfectly imperfect mistakes,
Learning and growing every single day,
Because life has no retakes.
