The storyteller


I don’t consider myself as a poet
I just write some words on pieces of paper
and I am not a musician
because I never learn to play the guitar

and please don’t call an author
I never could have a best seller
but if you want to call me something
just call me a storyteller

I am not a teacher
I was never good at arithmetic
and I am not an actor
although some said I’m a little too dramatic

and please don’t think I’m rich
because I don’t own a house with a wine cellar
but if you want to call me something
just call me a story teller

yeah I like to tell all kind stories
from all different sides of life
some are humorous and some are funny
and some can cut your heart like a knife

and don't think that I am someone famous
because me and the camera never really click
although my last name is “Ishmael”
and is in the great novel Moby dick

I am from the island of Trinidad and Tobago
a fact that I so proudly claim
land of the humming bird, scarlet ibis
the pitch lake, beaches and sugar cane

and I was never a very smart person
I leave school when I was only seven
and I don’t believe in religion
just be a good person and you will go to heaven

I like to take walks on the sand
And in mayaro beach one time I saw a shark
And I like to look up at stars
And see how they twinkles in the dark

And when I am standing outside
I like to see small planes with propellers
so if you want to call me something
then just call me a story teller

I like to play cricket and football
With the boys back in 2nd street
And after we will be drinking some cold beers
And cooking a pot of something to eat

And I like to write about my boyhood days
From la romain, Indian trail and marabella
And tales I heard from my grandmother
Who was the greatset story tellerr

Maristel Espiritu: I am so disappointed with the ending. I was so happy with the character of elizabeth. Its a matter of talking it out.

Çhrį§: I my personal opinion this was the best poetry book that I've read, everything in it is amazing, the way that the author was able to make me picture what was going on in my head and be able to see exactly what the author was talking about. To add on, even though the book is about sad situations.....

ᴄᴏꜰꜰᴇᴇ ʙᴇᴀɴᴢ: The poems are short, they describe everyday actions that most people, in one way or another must have experienced in life. A text left on seen, a love unrequited, losing hope, pushing through. Beautiful messages we all can relate to. Amazing! Keep writing because you're doing great!

kittyloverinsca: This was a great book but I just wasn't expecting it to be that short so not to be bossy or anything but next time try to make it a little bit longer but overall it was wonderful.

Deleted User: I love reading poetry and this one is a very nice story. I really liked it and enjoyed reading it.
