I thought I wanted to be an artist
but then I heard of the “starving artist”
I thought I wanted to be a designer
but then I was told it would be hard to find a job
I thought I wanted to own a business
but then I heard of bankruptcy
I thought I wanted to be an optometrist
but I would have to go through eight more years of school
I thought I wanted to be a label
something that would make me happy.
But all the research made me realize
every career has its flaw
and until the day I find a flaw
that fits my flaws like a puzzle
I will have found the right path.
