Sometimes I wish I could write a poem.
Like Emily Dickinson, or
Robert Frost.
I wish I could make something out of nothing,
A million things out of a single sentence.
I wish I could use phrases like,

'love,
the breaking

of your
soul
upon
my lips'

But all that comes to mind is some
Overused Obama quotes.
Is it that I'm not a poet?
You can't become a poet?
You have to be born a poet?
Does it really take a life
to say,

'Roses are red,
Violets are blue'

And actually mean it?
For it to actually have
a meaning?

I may trod on the path
many have before me.
But I will wander from it
and make one that is unique for me.
And that is what makes me a poet.
I also posted this on my Hellopoetry account: http://hellopoetry.com/poem/unique-unlike-me/

Also, the first poem script in mym poem is a bit of E.E. Cumming's 'As Is The Sea Marvelous'
