Being a writer
A mixture of pleasure and pain
Frustration and joy
Wanting to give up and still moving forward
Hoping for a straight road to success
Life shows me that it has no guarantees
Its the journey that counts
When can I be okay with how life is now?
What am I trying to prove?
Who am I trying to prove it too?
There is pleasure in watching my pain
No joy in experiencing my success
Cry at night wondering where to go
The morning sun brings relief
A new day welcomes me in
I pick up my pen and I write
