Shaker (Poem)

Looking back on this life

Seen a story of drama

And so much needless strife

Now I see a panorama

Of new opportunity, rife

With chance, I gain new stamina

An inspiration, I need to be a shaker

Shake my own foundation

Take no mental vacation

I need to be a voice for my generation

Maybe a voice on a big radio station

I have a dream to fight degeneration

Of human hearts, souls & minds 

That should be my vocation

I’ve made enough mistakes

A strong voice inside me awakes

I know I have what it takes

I don’t know where to start

But, I know in my heart

I must strive to take part

And be a world shaker 

With my words of advice

Originally written in April 2006, this poem was written for a Poetry Slam.
