Deity Definition: a God, God like, Goddess, or a holy person I am a deity When it comes to poetry So, please think carefully before you speak to me Like, Langston Hughes “I am the dream holder” Lyrical soldier I hold dreams in this pen Then unleash them on paper Make comedy into tragedy Like the great works of Shakespeare Over coming heartache like Maya Angelou Who was raped when she was seven years old Stopped talking for years All she felt was pain and tears Learned five languages And now has so much to say Thanks to Robert Frost I know “Nothing gold can stay” So, what are Wordsworth? “The perfect woman” In my eyes, but miscalculating So sad, like Tupac “Sometimes eye cry” Because I’m only human With an immortal soul A god upon men so, let the truth be told I am a Deity Like Zeus, or Hercules Studied philosophies like Socrates I walk amongst human beings like an entity A divinity so can you see? I’m just trying to be me Lazarus was Jesus’ friend Until the end But couldn’t live with the guilt I am the foundation on which empires are built A coliseum I suppose The stomping ground of a 1000 dead poet’s souls No one knows my full potential Something like Michael Angelo’s 16th Chapel But, I’m here to stay “A great life, is a long life lived”’ Like Confucius say Felonious competition is no threat to me One day you’ll understand, that I am a Deity
