POEMS BY ONE MICAIAH

 
What If I’m Lame?
 
What if I’m lame?
What would you call my name?
Would you still treat me the same?
Even with all the shame
 
What if I’m lame?
How will I achieve all of my aim?
Will I still be able to get my fame?
With the newly acquired claim
 
What if I’m lame?
What would I do to reject a frame?
Will I be able to put out a flame?
In my beautifully dejected maim
 
What if I’m lame?
What name will be my nickname?
Will I be able to proclaim?
I guess I’ll just get plenty counterclaim
 
What if I’m lame?
Would I think of who I became?
Will I be allowed to bear my surname?
For me, I think, it will be my endgame
