I wrote this in my senior year in High School back in 2009. I still feel this way about writing.

Everything I am is still a mystery to me,

When the mind tries to understand my heart just disagrees.

The lines that leave a trail will forever be mine,

If I achieve or if I fail it’s permanent my sign.

 

Regardless of the world all of my devotion,

Is for the words I write interpreting my emotions.

Different paths and roads are put across my sight,

Why can’t people understand all I want to do is write?

 

It’s not a curse; it’s not a gift or something simply to kill time,

It’s in every cell, in every beat; it’s my unique given design.

As the young being that I am applications for the future are given out,

What mother wants, what father thinks and what of me I doubt.

 

I can’t escape it’s in my blood and every fiber of my skin,

Inside my eyes and in my hand wherever blood has been.

Deep in my heart and in my soul my true design displays,

What I will do incessantly for the remainder of my days.

 

Words written on a surface is what I feel I should live for,

My state of mind and creativity are things I can’t ignore.

Painters paint their talent and writers write them down,

Architects design them as musicians play their sound.

 

‘What if it takes me nowhere?’ I’m imprisoned in that thought,

What if I’m not good enough for everything I fought?

In the end I cannot flee from writing all these lines,

This is what God made of me, to write is my design.
