Favorite Quote:
Fiction's not much different from Reality, sometimes people just forget to look for the magic in their own lives

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

The author's comments:
I was feeling down about not being able to do stuff but I remembered that I can write and it's something I enjoyed and that made me feel better knowing I had something I could do.

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/

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.
