Stolen or Inspired – Day 13

I look back and see
All I’ve stolen from thee
Your old jeans
Your old t-shirts
I’ve tried to become like you
I have stolen your hobbies too
Poetry
Photography
Birdwatching
Now gardening perhaps
Though singing I never could
But I know
You’ll always be better than me
You’re the closest to perfection
As far as I know
So I try to steal that too
Perhaps it’s inspiration rather than a theft
So keep inspiring me as you do

Based on NaPoWriMo Day 13 prompt – Write about things you have stolen.
