Not that I cant be…

Not that I cant be…

A note to my friends and loves
and also,snakes and doves
a good person; not that i cant
be
the critics i bear is too much
for me
i have voice yet cant sing
melodious notes,no fans to me
cling
An Artiste; not that i cant be
give me time so my blind eyes
can see
i ve got pen yet nothing to
write about
the right lines but cant make
the ink shout
A Poet; not that i cant be
it’s spiritual,your inside must
be set free
i ve got act,no theatre opens
its doors
much expression,i earn booes
and tossing claws
An Actor; not that i cant be
too much is
expected,especially from me
I ve got boots yet cant play
a remarkable past,all faded
away
A Footballer; not that i cant be
time; am a veteran is all i can
feel
i ve got brains yet no medal of
honour
grace yet no sponsor
A Genious; not that i cant be
it’s stressful,not ideal for my
body
i m comfortable yet am broke
a rich mentality,all are but
smoke
fulfilled; not that i cant be
greed; from it i wanna flee
i ve got girls,cant find the right
one
Beautiful,but not worth my
dying for
A Player,not that i cant be
just one,to love tenderly
I ve got the word yet i sin at
will
Scripture bred,well of living
water that kill
Saved; not that i cant be
prodigal; lord bring me back to
thee
i ve got it all yet i feel nothing
talents; stil that missing
something
PROUD; i pray never to be
cos with humility,i got these
gifts freely

  1. Mehn. I need to flog you. You have a really astounding poem here, but your rendition and arrangement is terrible.
    Concentrate on your lines. You break them where you shouldn’t.
    I don’t know how to tell you this without re writing the poem myself.
    Read your poem out loud to yourself following the lines you have and u will see how disjointed they are.
    Guy, keep trying.

  2. @ benson like @ oga Kaycee has said.Read your poem aloud to urself and see that only d sea possess waves!Your thoughts are quite understandable,but d scheming is not just it.Keep firing though.Keep writing!!!

  3. Dem don talk am…so I’ll just say…

    You tried.

  5. Not too bad.I struggled to get to the end sha.
