Some day.

I will be a pilot flying over the Northpole
dropping bags of frozen fish
to impoverished penguins

I will be a doctor in Africa
white lab coat and khakis shorts,
bringing a cure for malaria to a village of thousands

I will be a rock star/astrophysicist
taking time out from my European tour to
discover an energy source made from moon rocks

Some day,
I will be so many things.

But tonight I will quietly sit on the floor,
with arms wrapped around my knees
in place of someone holding me.
