I Want To Be Poetic

I want to be poetic, deep and brooding,
every word I say should have a second meaning.

I want to rhyme and sing beautifully,
not screech out another psalm.

I want to have some grand adventure,
Swing around a sword and save the day.

I want to be eccentric, outlandish, peculiar,
not this cliché freshman kid.

I want my fingertips to weave stories in the sky,
and make the elves dance circles ‘round my home.

I want to be poetic,
a variation from the norm.

The author's comments:
I always wanted to be strange for some reason. Just one of my life aspirations.
