So I Want To Be A Writer

so I want to be a writer
that’s easy enough to say
people say they want to be a writer
each and every day
so I want to be a writer
that’s easy enough to do
just sit down and write something
as long as it means something to you
so I want to be a writer
that’s easy enough to be
as long as you keep writing
and creating new things consistently
so I want to be a writer
that’s a hard way to support
myself in my passion
because money for the bills is always short
so I want to be a writer
but no one values art anymore
they always take for granted
entertainment in all its forms
so I want to be a writer
but I have to also market myself
sell my poems and books
if I want to make it on your shelf
so I want to be a writer
but theres much more to it than that
its constantly self advertising
and proving to the world that
I deserve their hard earned money
their attention and their time
that I deserve to be named “author”
because I’ve showed that I’m
capable of making others laugh
and of making others cry
capable of producing books
that others want to buy
so I want to be a writer
that’s easy when its for sport
but when you want to make it a career
it feels that you come up a little short
so I want to be a writer
but my want is now my need
I am giving myself no way out
there is no “Plan B”
so I want to be a writer
and so I writer I will become
over time I will prove to the world
that the uphill battle I’ll have won
I want to be a writer
and so I am

A free spirit and a wild soul. I am a writer who is seeking the inspiration found in the crannies and nooks of life. My goal is to combine the world in my head with the world around me one page at a time.
