"I'm well acquainted with villains that live in my head."

Everyone has a talent.
I know this.
People sing,
Listen and solve problems.
I write.
Stories painted in agony,
Dark reds,
Hollow black.
I cannot see
How my talent
Ties in.

I am faceless.
The one no one thinks of.
I am useless.

In the song of humanity,
I am the violin.
I am drowned out
By the deep cellos,
The shrieking trumpets.
I am never seen,
Never heard, it seems,
Until my solo comes.

Then I shine.

The author's comments:
I've always pondered the "everyone has a purpose" idea. My teacher told me once that my purpose is to be a writer, but I, personally, believe in talents. Not purposes. I can be good at writing, but I could live my life and do absolutely nothing. So I wrote this when I lingered in that weird middle area everyone hates.
