None belong to me! 

I have read a thousand books 

Sang about a million lyrics 

But none of those words belong to me 

I have felt every stanza 

Cried every lyric 

But none of those words belong to me 

For the words that belong to me 

Go unnoticed, sometimes unsaid 

Letters in a dairy 

Essays on a text 

Thoughts on a blog 

But those words I hear over the radio 

Those words I touch on paper 

They touch so much of the words I never say 

They speak for my words without a voice 

Symphony of letters that surround me 

That give way to those thoughts of we 

The we, the he, the she

Gives life to sound and sound to letters 

I have recited numerous poems 

Hummed a million melodies 

But none belong to me!
