Original Poem By Kyle Dibert, Titled “Just a Book”

Was it my choice As a boy to be this way ?
To wake up everyday 

And speak my mind 

Say what I say ?

Am I just an actor in another’s play? 

Am I just a character 

In someone’s book, 

Tucked on a dusty shelf  

Where no one may ever look?

Or maybe I’ll be like water 

Crucial to your health;

Or maybe like money 

Crucial to your wealth, 

But one way or another 

I’ll be stuck like a paper weight 

On the top of an old book shelf.

And maybe there 

After everyone has lost me –  

I’ll find myself.
