    I wanna be a woman
    Who can control her life
    I wanna be a mother
    who doesn't let impatience
    bring lasting strife

    I wanna be a sister
    Who somehow comprehends
    her sister's tortured mind
    does have a beginning and an end

    I wanna be a daughter
    Who does the best she can
    To please my mom and dad
    and make them understand

    I wanna be a lover
    Who can please and tease her man
    When every romantic gesture
    Takes careful, tedious plan

    I wanna be a grilfriend (there is a difference)
    Who nutures, cares, and loves
    Whose there for her sweetheart
    Who support helps him reach
    His stars above

    I wanna be a writer
    Who nerver loses creativity
    whose every expressive thought
    flows free and generously

    I wanna be a queen
    whose confidence is never shaken
    whose stance won't be mistaken
    whose happiness can't be taken

    I wanna have the sense
    to make sensible choices
    to teach my daughter
    that only the strong ones
    have the loudest voices

    I wanna be needed
    I wanna be sought
    I wanna know that all of my precious treasures
    can never be brought

    I wanna stare at the day's end
    And finally feel like I'm home
    But most of all, I think
    I wanna end this poem.

    the sky is the limit
    and the biggest obstacle
    any person can ever have
    is right between their ears...

    you can be and accomplish anything you want
    it's just mind over matter...


    Very inspirational flow!
    Thanks for sharing!

    There are many, including myself, who want those same things in life, never know what treasures life will bring. And I love the way you ended this piece. :)

    Like the others, I loved the way you ended this poem, but I also loved the way you took us through your wants, because they are so similar if not the same, as our own. Great flow
