I Am


I am one of the greatest poets of all time
I wonder if my stories will withstand the test of time
I hear the voices of myths and monarchies speaking from my paper
I see spotlights even after I am in the ground
I am a poet with passion

I pretend I live in another time
I feel every breath collect when I give a performance
I touch hearts and leave imprints on minds
I worry my creations will die along with me
I cry when I see the curtains close
I am a poet with passion

I understand that the show must go on
I say "All the world's a stage"
I dream my words will come through my fingertips and color the pages
I hope my legacy will live on
I am a poet who uses black ink to draw my dreams for others
