you will never make it big if you dream small. youll never learn if your living in the past and youll never understand if you were to fast forward, just press play and live!

She's a writer. She feels.
Her dispair is almost tangiable.
Her body aches with emotions stored away.
She can't seem to find the right words, but when she does it becomes something beautiful.
She's inspired by life.
She's ambitious and bright.
Her stories are heartfelt and real.
She's a writer and she writes not only for you to read her experiences but to feel.

A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep.

~Salman Rushdie

Ha! That is exxxactly how I feel, too. I feel a certain ways ometimes, reallyu want to wrrite it down. But I'm in a loss of words, and it really doesn't feel good because you want to let it out, you know? I'm glad that some people understand what this is like. :)

You articulated very well the passion that is necessary for a true writer. If this really is about you, I admire you for having such inspiration. And you wrote the poem very well.

I would rather you hate me for all that I am then love me for something I'm not.
