i wish i was. more poetry?

i wish i was,
but i'm not.
i wish i was vague and elusive
writing with hidden meanings
only intellectual types
could interpret.
i wish i was

i wish i could
but i can't
i wish i could draw from the depth that lies within me
to create something beautiful
i wish i could

but i'm drawn from a shallow well
the water so clear
if you drop something into it
you need not even fish around to find
the thing you dropped.

when i wrote this
i searched for rhyming words
like simple and pimple
and people read my work
and said,
I could have wrote this.

Why didn't you? :)
