• I can string words together
    and call it poetry

    yet I will never be a poet

    I can insert commas and paragraphs
    and call it a story

    yet I will never be writer

    I can lengthen it, adding chapters and sequels
    and call it a book

    yet I will never be a novelist

    But I can write down the notes
    and play them with passion
    making it flow like a poem
    giving it explanations like a story
    inserting movements like a novel

    and I can be a musician
