Ready To Learn - Poem by Kendzi Samuel

Here are my dreams
In colors, not in black and white
I wouldn't let you see my fears though
Cause somewhat I think, I got inside
The beauty and the wisdom, and of course, the pride

The hopes would rise, like tides in moonlight
And every fear shrinks, in the land of my dreams
Where my desires are taller than trees giants
They came like heroes, without their capes
And left, just two, with a bunch of grapes

Lost in the city, amidst the neon lights
The skyscrapers stare me down, I gaze in awe.
My fears wheeze past me in flashes of yellow
They sleep in narrow alleys, beneath their trucks,
At elevators fate with designer socks

The hopes might fall, like the clouds
And drench me with reality, as my tears
No one would see, cause it rains
But the failure I feel, it is for real.
And my words and paintings lack the skill.

Here I arrive at your table,
My hat between my palm and bosom
My gaze catches yours, then falls to the floor
To be the right person, with all heart I yearn
So here I am, yes, ready to learn.
