and then..

and then..

at first i wanted
to draw and paint
then discovered
i was no good
so then i thought
well
i’ll just sing
but my voice
would not carry
the tune
and then came the failure
of trying to dance
my body swayed
and jiggled
off beat
my feet did a tango
while my arms
danced a samba
and i gave up
collapsing
in a heap
so i threw myself
into my books
and explored the worlds
unknown
science and unicorns
hobbits and space
politics
witches
and law
and then
i learned to write
to make my words
dance and sing
to paint
with metaphor
and simile
and to send
my emotions
crashing to earth
in a ship
of my own choosing
