I Want to Be
Izabela, Age 10, Maple Ridge, BC

I want to be colorful
But not so colorful
That a rainbow seems dull.

I want to be pretty
But not so pretty
That a flower seems ugly.

I want to be tall
But not so tall
That a tree seems small.

I want to fly high
But not so high
That clouds seem low.

I want to be fast
But not so fast
That a bullet seems slow.

I want to be skinny
But not so skinny
That a toothpick seems wide.

I want to be wide
But not so wide
That it takes years to find my good side.

And last but not least
I want to be smart
But not so smart
That everyone seems dumb.
