It’s too early to aspire for greater goals
When I was Five,
I longed to read and write in mother tongue
But it was too early, for I knew only how to write three alphabets.
When I was nine
I aspired to be like my teacher
But it was too early, for I tried to read and struggle to write
When I was fifteen
I wanted to be a good reader
But it was too early for I just tried to spell and pronounce the words.
When I was nineteen
I aspired to be a good public speaker
But it was too early for I just began to read.
When I was twenty five
I aspired to be called a PhD holder
But it was too early for I was a second year graduate.
And now I am twenty nine
And I long to be a professor, excellent writer and speaker
But it’s too early for I try to express my ideas in broken language.
And now I begin to realize that too early aspirations and dreams
Focu me in goal setting before it’s too late.
