Treasure Island

Katelin Taylor

(May 20,1993 / San Diego, Ca)

If I Wanted To


If I wanted to, I could
Tear you down with my words
I could shatter your reputation
With a single blow to your lies

If I wanted to, I could
Ruin everything for you
But I'm not so small.

I realize
That perhaps you are human
And perhaps so am I
Maybe I'm a little wrong too
Like you
So
I will be silent
As people talk about you
Saying how marvelous you are
Because
Although I don't think you near as marvelous
I could, after all, be wrong.

    Unlike he if I wanted two
    soft are your words they are nice.
    From the heart one I hear,
    like the stars in the night clouds are clear.
    Lift me up, never down,
    thoughts one are taught and
    pure are the eyes to the soul.....iip (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
