Mama

Mama says "Be a surgeon, a very good doctor"

I tell her "But I want to be an artist,"

Mama says "Be a lawyer, have a tongue that fights you down"

I tell her "But I want to be an artist"

Mama says "Be a police, catch the crime in your hands"

I tell her "But I want to be an artist"

Mama says "Be a trainer, delete all that tum,"

I tell her "Shut up mum!"

"I don't want to be a surgeon nor a god damn lawyer. I don't want to be a police or a very good trainer.

I want to draw my life out with a single paint brush

for I want to be nothing other than a beautiful artist."

and mama shakes her head and says "no."
