I want to be
     The mountains of Plateau
     The waterfalls in Benue
     The whispering love bird
     Tie dyed forests and multicolored rainbows

     Laughter during long walks
     on the white beaches of Seychelles
     Crystal fireworks viewed from a boat
     on a river in Prague

I want to be
     The inspiration behind the breasts of the sculpture
     The idea behind the art and the picture
     Flamboyant butterflies on orchids and violets

     Rose petals in a warm bath
     Musical notes played on a glass piano
     A sunset glossed over candlelit dinner

I want to be

I want to be
     The build up to the unexpected revolution
     That conquers imperialism
     The Independence speech of the formerly colonized

     The soldier that fought against his own army
     when their injustices weakened him
     A red and bloody cry against racism

I want to be
     The imprisonment of the dictator
     The mutiny that defies corruption
     Heavy words to bury the oppressor

     The shoulder that soothes a wailing orphan
     Marble archways and satin sheets
     For every homeless person down the street

I want to be
