A Man Can Dream

A Man Can Dream by Jarrius Smith

A Man Can Dream

I have big dreams.

I’m trying to become a man

They remember like Michaelangelo.

A literary legend like Maya Angelou.

Words so concrete

That they have trouble spelling it like

The name DeAngelo.

Intangible Lines resembling that of music.

Barry Manilow.



That makes people


It’s not even a foreign language,

But they Can’t translate

How I planned

To make something so


Explosive verses.


Simple to read.

Specific Characteristics like Atlantis.

Yet, different like

The Pacific


The Atlantic.


Turn from what’s expected

To oceanic.

A change of pace and they can’t stand it.

It’s like my critics are the iceberg

Trying to sink the Titanic.

When it comes to rhyming poetry, I want to expand it.

It’s been dead for years,

And no one demands it.

It can withstand the test of time in the

Right person’s hands.

Jarrius Smith’s mix of lyricism, detail, and style is a dangerous force to be reckoned with. He is known in the literary community (on Wattpad.com and, most notably, Sweek.com) by his alias “Yenaros”.
