Poem: I Wanted

by Jonathan Page Acabo

I wanted to write a song,
but I can't be a songwriter.
I have no idea about reading notes,
only I know how to sing.
Yes, I wanted to write a poem,
but there's no language in my soul.
I wanted to scream like a lion
but it's so quite around.
I wanted to see the light
but it's so dark.
I wanted to stand
but I have no slippers.
I wanted to dance
but there's no music.
I wanted to sleep
but there's no heaven.
I wanted to go out
but it's too late.
I wanted to love and
I got you!

About the Poem:
