Poet - Donald Falconer (Poetry)

Updated: Sep 20, 2018

The ultimate challenge for us poets is believing in ourselves, even when the world doesn't. Donald Falconer pens a beautiful lyrical poem that is very moving for writers and readers alike.


I am what I couldn’t say,

what I moved out the way,

what the world didn’t want to know.

I am where I couldn’t go.


It didn’t pay the rent,

and people didn’t believe,

It didn’t give me a cent

but still I didn’t leave.


And they kept asking

what I did for a living.


Inside I would cry a tear

and I give them another face.

The world made me fear

that I was out of place.


But still I carried on

with all my dreams gone.


I am what I couldn’t say,

what I moved out the way,

What the world didn’t want to know

I am where I couldn’t go.


Like a bird needs to fly,

we can all find our way.

Like a mind needs to know why,

we can all make a play.


Sometimes we just need to lead

to find out what it is we need.


And now if you ask me what I do

I will not sigh,

because my feelings are brand new

to give a reply.


Now with my words I will sing

that I am only the beauty that I bring.


I am what I couldn’t say,

what I moved out the way,

what the world didn’t want to know.

I am where I couldn’t go.
