When I Grow Up - Poem by Lochard Noel

I'd like to go somewhere
To spread health
Or a great brick layer
To separate concrete and bricks

I'd like to be a teacher
To shape beautiful minds
I'd like to be a farmer
To plant rice, corn and beans

I'd like to be a police officer
Who worked for justice
Or a good mechanic
I'd like to excel in my profession

You're attending school
Stay in school and
Take what you're doing seriously
Forget to crime, drugs, and bad friends
Think to help society.
