I can’t write about love
Because I’m not in it,
And I can’t write about victory
Since I never win it,
I can’t write about hate
I have nothing suppressed,
I won’t write about sadness
When I’m not depressed,
I won’t write that I’m happy
That’s not the case,
I won’t write about mistakes
That I can’t erase,
I won’t write about stupidity
If I know I’m smart,
I won’t write about cruelty
When I have a heart,
I won’t write about anything
Since I have a choice,
But I will write when I want
Because I do have a voice.

Woah. This is one of the best poems I have read on this website. I seriously hope it gets into the magazine, because it is simple, beautiful, and totally speaks of you, as a person, which is one of the major reasons that someone writes, which is to express themselves. And here you've done it in a poem that is about having nothing to write about. Which is pretty darn good, if I do say so myself. Five stars!
