if i —

[A complete rework of a poem from age 16. – Owen]


if i was handsome
then
the world would open for me

if i knew words and
when
to say them right

if i had smiles
that
people gained a little from

if at my visions,
people’s
minds took flight

but seldom do i
see
such opportunities

and rarely have i
known
what all to do –

i want to be some-
one
i’m never gonna be

someone who’s something really
great
to you
