I wanna write

I wanna write symphonies that put you on the edge of your seat

I wanna write sonatas that make you cry
and solos that make you shiver

I wanna write poems that make you speechless

I wanna write essays that make you think beyond your world
and stories that take you to faraway lands

I wanna write speeches that make you stand up and cheer
and letters that make you wish you were here

I wanna tell the world what i have to say before this spark turns into a flame and burns me to pieces

but i can't, i'm chained to the ground with a
ball of lead called judgement
and what I write never leaves my computer or my mind
because of fear

fear of what?
i'm too afraid to find out.

The poem is mistitled, that was for a different one and I forgot to delete it. This one is really called I Wanna Write.
