Job description for the Future


The teachers ask me,
'What do you want to be? '
what kind of job do I want to do?
But to be honest, I don't have a clue.

I like singing,
should I become a singer.
I like writing poems,
does that make me a poet?
I am working on my own book,
does that let me become a writer later?
The last one I hope.

Yet I cannot give the teachers answers,
For that is a free verse.

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen
