want to be

If Joel Madden is famous, then I don’t want to be.
If Erykah Badu is an empress presence, then I could be.

If Tony Abbott has power, then I don’t want it.
If Layne Beachley is heroic, then I hope to be.

If academics who are rude, snappy and mean in emails are applauded, then don’t applaud me.
If a good teacher is known in the hearts and smiles, then dear God I’d like to be.

If my brand is never perfect, let it flag.
My output messy, then it will be.

(Being in me, I don’t want the other).
