I don’t want to be the center of attention,
I don’t want to be the Alpha or Omega of opinion,
I don’t want a carpet laid at my feet as I walk,
For now, in this moment in time, I just want to talk,
 
I’m writing a book that I hope will resonate with teens,
To encourage them to seek help by all necessary means,
I’m not asking for a #1 best seller like The Catcher and the Rye,
If it just saves one person, I’d be more than satisfied,
 
After this book is published, I hope I’m still treated the same,
I don’t want to be seen as a celebrity who showers himself in fame,
I don’t want to be an author full time, like Rowling or Osborne,
I want to enjoy a the quiet life in the place where I was born,
 
I want to earn my degree in Library Science and hold it above my head,
Accomplishing a major goal in my life my Dad never did,
I want to help guide people big and small to the information they seek,
And every time I do, I’d have a smile from cheek to cheek,
 
If someone were to recognize me, I’m a welcoming man,
Provided they care about the sculpter of the glorious castle of sand,
I’m a person who enjoys the simple things that bring me joy,
Friends, family, staying healthy, all the things I’ve had since I was a boy.
