My teacher came and asked me, when I was only 4,
what I may want to be in life, what I may have in store.
I scratched my head in wonder, and then I did surmise
“I want to be a fireman and save a million lives”.
My teacher came and asked me, when I was only 8
what I may want to be in life, what I think would be great.
Briefly I considered, positions near and far,
then I said “I’ll be an astronaut so I can search the stars”.
My teacher came and asked me, when I was only 10,
what I may want to be in life to touch the lives of men.
I pondered for a moment, and then I said with glee
“I think I’ll be the president and conquer poverty”.
My teacher came and asked me, when time came to graduate
Which goal I plan to strive for, which one will be my fate.
I looked at her and answered, I’ve found a plan you see,
"I’ll give my life to Jesus first, then maybe do all three".
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Nice. Flows really well.
Good for you if this is true,
I love to hear Faith openly declared in schools/ colleges.
I teach, and although God is no longer 'allowed', I am noticing more and more Christians speaking out.
I guess the politicians forgot to inform God that He was banned!
Good poetry. God Bless.
