Wishing Through My Pen


I wish that I was a prolific poet like Wanda Coleman.
That I could write revolution poems like Shelley
Or songs like Robert Nesta.
Wish that I could weave stories through my poetry
Like Gwendolyn, Sonia, Nikki, Audre and Maya.
That I could write the beauty of nature like Wordsworth and
But I am just me.
Just this version of a poet;
Simply putting pen to paper.
And right now…
That has to be enough.
