I would love to be a poet, 

One that goes beyond the page, 

A poet that stands on a stage

 

I would love to be a somebody who could use their voice

To help people make a choice 

But I am just a poet

 

I am just a poet who hides, 

Behind metaphors and lines

 

I'm someone scared of reactions 

Scared of not rewarding brains with significant satisfactions 

 

I'd love to be an actual poet
