being a writer
being a writer,
there’s no alternative for you.
for everything has a meaning
you know what you have to do.
you have to write it down
a significant part of your time
your daily life is often interrupted
as fitting words come to mind.
a million phrases pass through
to punctuate your thoughts
your mind constantly wanders
and reality is sometimes blurred
there are whispers in your head
as characters want to be created
you must not roam on though
for writing should be understated.
a poet’s words are pure and true
you must write what is in your mind and heart
it comes out in little spurts sometimes
as you choose precious words to start.
so you see, although it’s a gift
at the same time, i suppose it’s a burden
nevertheless it’s who we are inside
we see the world as it is, black and white
without a doubt it could be worse
