‘Maybe Richard will find another way. Just tell him, Alice. Tell him that his own Confessor never stopped loving him. And that if he can’t undo the magic, if he can’t return to her then, she’ll be waiting for him, in the Underworld. Forever.’
-Mother Confessor Kahlan Amnell,
Legend of the Seeker

I am a musician.
I wonder what’s fff?
I hear music everywhere.
I see an orchestra.
I want to play guitar.
I am a musician.

I pretend not to have a dream world.
I feel a thin reed.
I touch the smooth silver keys.
I worry I’ll never perfect it.
I cry “Sing it again!”
I am a musician.

I understand how to read music.
I say I love this piece.
I dream of no more sad songs.
I try to play my best.
I hope my last song is happy.
I am a musician.

I wrote this for a class assignment some years ago. I changed it a bit, but not much, so this is a good example of my younger work.
