Think back far in time
As a child in your prime.
What were your interests? Was it really cool?
What did you do before you started school?
Look back into your activity
And was it all really pretty?
It’s given a clue to your being
That you will find quite interesting-
Were you a writer? Making scribbles everywhere
Were you a reporter? Constantly talking and asking questions
Were you a beautician? Combing your sister’s and mother’s hair
Were you an artist? Drawing on the wall
Were you an engineer? Taking things apart
Were you a teacher? Telling stories to your sibling
Were you a scientist? Discovering the seeds, soil, and plants
Were you an astronaut? Interested in the stars, moon, and sky
Were you a baker? Finding recipes and gathering ingredients
Were you a nurse? Bandaging your doll’s hurts
Were you a musician? Clanking the pots and pans
Were you a banker? Playing with money and coins
Were you a farmer? Using toy tractors and animals
Were you a race car driver? Playing with hot wheels
The creation of what was once in play
In just a little way-
May be the talents you still have today!
