Not so-bright lightbulb


I’m not the brightest of them all.

I can still shatter to a

million pieces

when I fall.


People can see

right through me;

my hopes, my dreams,

my insecurities.


However, there are a few

who know me


that I’m not just a translucent hue.



I’m filled with ideas

that will make you think

or give you hope.


There will be a time

that I can’t find

the right words

to rhyme.


So, give it your best

and so will I!

Word after word, tapping

to the rhythm of your chest.


I may not be a lot

to everyone around,

forever a friend, forever a poet,
