Split a page into three sections. Draw or write about the three 'big wishes' you want to make come true in life.

If I Were Me



When I was young

As young as you

I did not know

What I could do

I did not know

What I would see

I did not know

What I could be

I did not know

What made me me


The views were new

The dreams were tall

The climbs were fun

The fear small

The wishes big

The laughter heaped

The wonder wide

The magic deep

No time to look

Before the leap


And now I’m old

As old as me

I know the dreams

I didn’t see

I know the same

Recurring view

I know each day

What I would do

If I could know

The things you knew


Imagine all the things we’d be

If I were you and you were me

Imagine all the things we’d do

If I were me and you were you

letting go
letter to haters
i didn't dare go
if i were me
rope swing
say i fail
the different path
way to win
where do i go now?
