I wanted to be a politician, so I could chose smart policy and make good decisions.

I wanted to be an entrepreneur, so I could bring innovation and prosperity to my society.

I wanted to be a community leader, so I could bring people together.

I wanted to be a motivational speaker, so I could help people become their best.

I wanted to be a researcher, so I could advance our knowledge and bring us closer to truth.

When facing hardship and burned by flame / We look to myth for where to aim / As stories of old were understood / Extract the gold and make it good.
