How can I be a poet,
when the words I cannot find?
How can I be a poet,
When there's others more refined?

I've tried to give some words,
that are filled with sound advice.
I wonder when I give them though,
will others come this nice?

I yearn to write a story,
of a long and epic tale;
where pirates rule the sea's-
while the winds become a gale!

I long to write of legends,
From far and distant lands!
With maidens  bravely rescued,
By white knights that are so grand.

For now I must be happy,
just to write this simple poem;
of desires still unfulfilled,
in a soft and simple tone.
