I envy those who can sing

Their voice so entrancing and beautiful

I envy those to can play music

They express beauty without words

I envy they who can draw and paint

For they can capture and tame the world into pictures

I am but a simple writer

My tools are words, wit, and imagination

But written words cannot inspire

Perhaps if they were sung or spoken

And wit only works in conversation

Not dead in ink and paper

Imagination cannot help me

For I am stuck in reality

But as I've grown I have learned

That though words are dead and lifeless

My wit breathes life into it

And my imagination gives it shape

MY words are true things

For I am a writer

And I make it real

My best friend is destined to become the next Claude Monet, and I was always ridiculously envious. It's comforting to see my thoughts reflected here. Thank you for writing this/

this is breathe taking writing.It is shocking how in depth you really are to the thoughts that many writers share with you.

Loved it. You have an amazing talent, you're poetry portrays the beauty of a simple pen and paper or notebook and pencil, or an intelligent mind and a bold attitude. I enjoyed it a lot.

True, very true, but I have learned that writing is anything but simple, and that written words really can inspire!
