"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."


Everyone
in the world
was going to the same place
and I followed

From behind
I could see
a whole new path to follow
so I turned away

And at a time
I wandered
unsure of my new path
I was scared

a look back
and I'm thankful
I didn't follow mindlessly
for now I am me.

THis is actually about how I decided to go to a different school than my friends in order to pursue my dreams
