why can’t i write

millions of words

for people to read

and buy books by the herds?

why can’t i sing

like an angel in the sky

and music to flow

out of my mouth by and by?

why can’t i see

the artistic things

and make tapestries of color

out of a few simple strings?

why can’t i feel

the emotional stress

that people ask for advice for,

my friends visit me less.

why can’t i know

what i’ll need to pass

i may not be special, 

but i want a part of the mass.

my dreams and my wishes

all require some talents

but alone and unworty

i lie in imbalance.
