20 years

November 23, 2020


Where do you see yoursef in 20 years?
I'll be 33.
I have no idea where I'll be.

I've just finsihed the stessful season of applying to highschool.
I have gone through lots of interviews.
lots of them.
I have been asked that question a lot.
Where will I be in 20 years?
I don't even know what I'm eating for dinner.
How will I know what I will be doing?
I always respond with
"I've always wanted to be a photographer."
They'll go
"Oh! How did you get into photography?"
I'll tell them about my dads' camera, 
and all the classes I took,
while slowly thinking in my mind,
I don't want to be a photographer.
I have no intrest in being a photographer.

I'll lie, saying that photography is my favorite past time.
You know what my favorite past time is?
Of course I can't say that.

Where do I want to be in 20 years?
I want to be the leader of the free world.
I want to walk on Mars.
I want to swim to the depths of The Mariana Trench.
I want to discover new elements.
I don't want to be sitting around,
taking photos,
when I could be making a difference in someone's life.

In 20 years,
I want to be a game-changer.
A difference-maker.
A risk-taker.
But most importantly,
I want to be me.
I know that this was baiscally just a rant, sorry. Also, no offense to people who want to be photographers. I think that photography is an amazing thing, it's just not really for me.

    Wow this is such a wonderful poem! I can relate to a certain extent. I hate it when people ask me what I want to be when I grow up. I think the question should be "what do you want to do when you grow up?" Because all the things I want to do doesn't fit a single profession. Also, you did great with the last line. So impactful! :)
