I could be....

I'd love to write like Bob Dylan,
And dance like Fred Astaire,
To look like Tony Curtis,
When he had all his own hair!
Have a girlfriend like young Marilyn,
And hang out with Brad Pitt
Be hung like Errol Flynn was 
I think I'd be a hit!
Like Marlon in the Wild One,
I'd ride a big Harley,
Find peace and grow long dreadlocks
Like Rasta Bob Marley!
I could cause carnage like old Arnie
In Terminator three 
Drive a big black van with a red stripe on
Like the legendry Mr. T.
I'd sing like Elvis Presley,
And Talk sense like John Lennon,
Imagine who I'd be,
I'd have money like Bill Gates has,
And play football like George Best,
I'd be totally unstoppable,
With little time to rest.
Instead though I'm just plain old me,
And I'm happy with who I am,  
I'd rather be me than P. Diddy
Or washed up like Jean Claude Van Damme!

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
