I Wanna Be……..

I Wanna Be……..

A Poem by craig miller

You can choose who you want to be. Make the right choice.


I Wanna Be……..


In the pursuit of happiness,

I wanna be……..


Ruthless not toothless,

Brazenly bold not too freaking old!

Prophetic not apologetic,

On a constant climb not sadly, sadly…out of time


And along the way, 

I wanna be……..


A free-thinking mind not a 9 to 5 grind,

A mountain stream not a nasty little scheme,

A mind-blowing creator not a one-dimensional hater,

A vision harvesting trawler not a closed mind stonewaller.


And I wanna be,


A summit topping explorer not a local bar brawler,

A disco ball not a drunken fall,

A creamy stout not an Instragram pout,

A righteous man not a driving ban.


And I wanna be,


A break dancer not a human cancer,

A Hollywood movie thriller not a long-faced buzz killer,

A flashing techno strobe not a bigoted xenophobe,

A steadfast and loyal friend not a gutter dwelling f*g end.


And I wanna be,


A real live wire not a lowdown sneaky liar,

A honest straight shooter not a shady joy looter,

A whispered kind word not a smelly, stinking t**d,

A fun-loving soul not a miserable a***hole.
