    UNCOMMON ABILITY

    Standing before you,
    like a shadow
    when the sun is at your back
    is this person who
    commands words,
    a drill sergeant of sorts
    barking out orders
    for verbs and adjectives,
    letting them do anything but
    float adrift on a sea of laughter
    and uncontrolled temperament.
    His directives spoken
    in similes of the sublime

    I AM

    I am bold and nothing you expected
    I wonder what God was thinking
    while creating this maze of existence
    that we all traverse
    I hear the whispers
    of those who fought hard
    simply so I can be,
