Fantastic aspirations for myself
To see my name present upon the cover,
Standing there a-watching at the shelf,
Fame and riches are not why I hover.
Connection with an audience of souls
Drives me to place blackened ink on paper.
I feel as if one of my short life's goals
Should be to give more of myself than vapor.
I want to make a lasting, long impression,
To give as much as I have gladly taken.
Within duration of my earthly session,
I want to give to others motivation.
A love of language gladly will I share,
To give to others everything I dare.
