Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

I wanna be like Mike

I wanna be like Mike


I always wanted to play

like David Gilmour.

I mean, I could play the notes

but I didn’t have his touch,

his passion,

his soul …


I always wished I could write

like Sylvia Plath.

I mean, I could write the words

but I didn’t have her passion,

her voice,

her soul …


I always wanted to

sing like,

paint like,

be as handsome as,

be as intelligent as,

be a spiritual leader like …


Suddenly, one day

I realized what I really wanted

was to find out who I was,

my words,

my passion,

my soul …


and I didn’t want to be like

anyone but myself.
