I'm a writer
I run free
I dance along the pages.
Let my mind fly effortlessly
I write what I feel
I let my tears run down my cheeks
Into my heart
Into the cracks
That have been made
By all the pain I've endured

I'm a writer
Free from it all
From the stares
The jeers
The limitations
The laws
That are always binding me
Never letting me fall
Deeper in love
With my writing

I'm a writer
I'm proud to say
Free to speak
Of all the pain
The suffering
The strain
Inflicted upon me
Because my brain
Could never fit
Inside my own head
So I write the rest on the paper

I'm a writer
Escaping through the trees Breaking through the rope
Always bound together
By the hope
That I wouldn't discover
The gift of freedom to write

I'm a writer
Not a runner
Or a nerd
Or afraid
Im fearless
The paper my shield
The pencil my sword
Because as a writer
I am a fighter
For those who don't know the right words

The word "nerd" means only as much as you give to it. 

Great poem :) Very free, strong, and very writer-y.

I love it! And I can definitely relate!

My favorite lines are the last three, but they're all quite lovely.

Nicely done!

I agree with Hippie. This poem is amazing & I can relate. It's very touching and moving. The last three words are for sure the best. (But i liked the whole thing) Keep at it!

Thanks a lot! I'm so glad you like it since most people have told me to pursue something more practical in life instead of poetry. It's just for me poetry and mainly writing in general is my life. I just hope I'll be able to get it in a magazine one day. I have so much to say I just need someone to listen.

I shouldn't be giving out advice and I'm probably just a romantic, but I've always thought it was best to do what you love to do. Yes, writing poetry for a living is neither 'pratical' nor 'safe', but if it's your passion, it's worth it. You'll need to be prepared for rejection and barely scraping by, but you're talented and I think you've got what it takes to make it as a writer.

Good luck in life and, please, keep writing. :)

Lol thanks for responding and I'm glad you understand since i'm definitely what you would call a hopeless romantic. I'm definitely ready for the hardships that come with doing what I love because I know it'll be worth while in the end :]
