I Can Do It All

It was truly a splendid structure, and Yossarian throbbed with a mighty sense of accomplishment each time he gazed at it and reflected that none of the work that had gone into it was his. - From Joseph Heller’s Catch 22.
I am a dancer
I fly across the sea
Wings for arms
A captivating smile lighting my way
I am a singer
Trilling tunes of love
People swooning at the sound
I am a writer
Penning the magical words
That bring a tear and a cheer
I am the athlete
Leaping, pounding, hopping bounding
Thrilling fans and foes alike
I am the dreamer
All things possible
Nothing real except perhaps
I can do it all and you must marvel 
The moon is envious
The tides blush
Purple majesty even
Is there no end to my accomplishments?
How many grand gifts do I possess?
Look while I shimmy
And shake
Make the mountains quake
All this from the stool of a bar
I can do it al
