Im awesome

When I grow up I’ll be the president,
But right now I’m just an Elgin resident.
When I grow up I’ll be an astronaut
I’ll show those who said I could not.
When I grow up I’m going to be great
I’ve said it since I was eight.
When I grow up I’ll own a big house
And live in Florida with Mickey Mouse.
When I grow up I’ll look at my past
And say wow that went by fast

This is just something i came up with in about five minutes. It's not too bad but let's be honest it's not the best work in the world.

I like this! Comical at some parts, and realistic at others. Great work! Please, read, rate, and comment on my poems! It would mean a lot.
