I am a writer who writes for myself
Just a plain me who loves to be somebody
I am not any other Vincent who paints
In some starry, starry nights
Neither am I some John who sings for
For Julian and Yoko
Me is a struggling writer who feeds
Moth on her brains and put it into writing

It would’ve been lovely to be in New York
Competing to be another statue of Liberty
Marveling at her beauty for everyone to see
But I am just a plain writer who cant even
Spell correctly.

In front of me is just some silly idea
Being hatched in my head
Voraciously trying her best
To satiates her fancy.
Not for money, not for fame
Like some dame who ramped her
Way to that red carpeted floor
Me is a writer who sleeps while awake
Hungry not for food but knowledge
Thirsts for her dreams to be realized
That she may one day like the rest
Proved to the world… that a writer
Is also an artist!

We all wanted to have a niche in this world and sometimes people lack the ability to push but instead they pull themselves down by not recognizing the "WHAT I CAN DO" attitude in them!

What an excellent read! Love this part: "...Me is a writer who sleeps while awake
Hungry not for food but knowledge
Thirsts for her dreams to be realized..."
