It has been difficult
So tedious and hard
I’m a writer
I’ve written
I’ve spoken
I’ve recited
I’ve tried to do right
I’ve even lived the show
I just want to make you smile
I want my words to bless you
I want to stroke your weary wrinkles
I want to caress them with my words
I want to magically turn your frown to a smile
I want to wipe your tears away
I want to transform your ignorance to knowledge
I want to cause you to laugh
To cause you to think
To cause you to love
To cause you to be cautious
To make you appreciate this beautiful gift
The beautiful gift of life
To be careful yet happy
To be calculative yet daring
To be prepared for each day
Each challenge
Each action
I’ll continue being who I am
I’m a writer
I write your thoughts
I write your secrets
