Alternate Dimensions


Who would I be in an alternate dimension
Would I be popular
beloved by many people
head in the stars, face all over tv
the famous poet I set out to be
live a life without goodbyes
live a life without mistakes and hesitation
Who would I be in alternate dimension
Would I be an alcoholic
dumbstruck, a mute
a speck on the globe
living on the streets
holding up a sign
saying someone ripped out my vocal chords
but I would perform work
just to get a clean set of clothes
Who would I be in an alternate dimension
Would I be a ladies man
look into a pair of starry eyes
and they'd be mine to control, to be apart of my very selfish desires
or would I just have the love of someone I never knew
or would she just be mine
and I'd be the only one to exist in her universe
while I am no one to the world
or would she hate me
despise everything I am
while I do everything in my heart to change her beautiful mind
Who would I be in an alternate dimension
A grave digger, ditch digger
a complete incompetent fool
or an evil genius
a football star
or a debater
a band geek
or a comic book fanatic
a trash collector
or would I have a job at all
would I be in college
or would throw it all away for crime
Would I just be shot in the back
end it all in a public suicide
or drown in the lake
while I'm being watched by flickering cigarette
Who would I be in an alternate dimension
Alternate Dimensions...
Alternate Dimensions...
Alternate Dimensions...
would I still be me or somebody new...
would I still be me or would I be you...

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
