story teller

story teller I am not a poet I just write words on paper I am not a musician never learn to play the guitar and please don't call an author I never could have a best seller but if you want to call me something just call me a story teller I am not a teacher was never good at arithmetic and I am not an actor because some people said I’m a little too dramatic and please don't call me rich because i don't have a wine cellar if you want to call me something just call me a story teller yeah I like to tell stories from all points of life some are very funny and some cuts your heart like a knife I am not someone famous me and the camera never really click although my name Ishmael in the great novel Moby dick I am from the island of Trinidad and Tobago a fact that i so proudly claim land of the humming bird ,scarlet ibis the pitch lake and sugar cane I am not a very smart person I leave school at age seven and I believe in there is a god and do good and you will go to heaven I like to take walks on the sand And in mayaro beach I saw a shark And I like to look up at stars And how they twinkle in the dark And when I am standing outside I like to see planes with propellers so if you want to call me something just call me a story tellers
