    Live for the moment
    This hour
    This minute
    That you won’t regret life
    When it’s (gone)

    If your dream is to soar
    Sprout wings and take flight
    Like the birds
    The wind
    If it’s right…it’s ALRIGHT

    Don’t depend on another
    To make your dreams come true
    Your destiny is yours
    It’s all up to you

    If your dream is to write
    Grab paper and pen
    Don’t do it to impress
    Do it from within

    Poetry makes you wonder
    Analyticals make you think
    Essays
    Shortstories
    A novel…if you’re deep

    Grab paper and pen
    And let the river flow
    If the beaver builds a dam
    Take a break
    Then write some mo’

    If you dream is to write

    WRITE.

    If writing is your niche in life
    Don’t forsake your love
    For husband or wife
    If they claim you’re selfish
    Arrogant, or cruel
    Say to them, quietly
    No one loves you like you

    Whatever your calling
    That’s what you must do
    Else, love and true happiness
    Will always escape you

    If writing is your niche in life
    Don’t worry ‘bout people
    Do the **** THANG right

    If you can’t write

    TYPE

    Just do the **** RIGHT.
