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

crissy: Awesome work. The characters are so beautifully flawed and easy to relate to. The protagonist Bethany Hill is a woman that I would definitely want to meet in real life. The author has managed to make me visualize the story like a movie. The two time frames of past and present are also so beautifu...

pencil: Something pulls at the heart and then distracts and makes it not pull. There is a urgency a haste to read and rally at the schizophrenic mind. But the schizophrenic mind is never sane and it is very unrelenting and not reliable. The images come and go and there is not much one can speak to someon...
