    Sometimes someone may come along and read me or others on the page and think that the words define the person or are the person, but not always...

    One person’s words
    May only be their reality
    But I write from the top
    Of my head

    I may be writing about you
    Or what I just read
    Or what I hope to be
    Maybe what I hope to see

    In this world or the next
    Sometimes I write
    A feeling expressed
    From something overheard

    I write fiction
    To fantasy
    Comedy
    And sadness

    I can’t put a box around it
    I don’t want to confine it
    I don’t want it dissected
    As if it was an unusual bug

    I write to release
    I write to paint joy
    I write for the appraisal of peers
    I write for me

    I write to heal people
    I write to tell stories
    Sometimes I write a dream of better days
    For you or me

    I give blue skies
    I give dreams
    I give hope
    On request

    But, not always do I write
    Me
    Not always do I write
    You

    But I write
    Words stringing together
    Like fine pearls
    Or just stones

    I write for the beauty
    Of a smile
    I paint pictures
    Of stories from my imagination

    But basically
    I write
    Because I like to
    I just do.

    Sometimes I am about to go to a reading and I will draw back and second guess my work. Thinking no one will understand me or Im not good enough. I recently almost didn't audition for this play at school called the Hip Hop Project. I ended up leaving them literally breathless and asking for more. I made it and the play is now going on tour in February. But I was comparing my stuff to all these people who I knew were off the chain and had to realize that I write 4 me. All of us have different styles, they call me Lady Elegance.
    People like you are why I write.
    Thanks :jump:
