Elizabeth Tyrrell


'I Am'


I am the one who knows that one more time never actually means it
The one who is always the first one on the field
And the last one off
I am the one whose fingers are as fast as the Flash
But they have to be to be the best
When I look at the time signature my mind fills with the infinite possibilities
The notes can sway and swing
Or they can be sharp and flat leaving the song feeling deadly
What I do is beautiful and inspiring
I try to prove that what I do means something
Not only to me, to everyone.

    Interesting one here. For some strange reason I am undecided on this poem. Maybe I need to read again another time (Report) Reply
