I want to be that writer

the one who makes his life brighter

Be that kind of poet

And makes sure everybody knows it

I want to be like another

Be like another brother

Got me inspired by Langston Hughes

And his masterful, elegant blues

Let me be the genius man

The one that has a lot he understands

Let me be like Shelby Steele

The man that embodies how a race can feel

Teach me empathy, Miss Gwendolyn Brooks

Show me

Teach me

The woman's outlook

I know these three

Have something instilled in me

Such a feeling, such a sensation

What I got from them is some serious inspiration

Inspiration was well... its a self explanatory poem!
