I Think I am a Writer

Updated on August 29, 2014
Outside my front door....
Outside my front door.... | Source

I wrap myself in another world as only I can see;

I think of things so vividly I imagine what they be,

I open up my heart and soul to find an inter space,

I paint a picture out of words that others cannot trace.

I know I need to concentrate on what I want to say.

I need a fresh and open mind to brighten up my day.

I sit here calmly at my desk stroking letters knowing;

I need a time just meant for me to get my juices flowing.

I welcome inspiration as I proceed along my way.

I want to express myself but clutter blocks my waves.

I sometimes deal with wild distractions clogging up my brain.

I try to stay in focus as I ride this runaway train.

I think I want to be the one to help as best I can.

I want to introduce a thought to help the modern man.

I read to find the answers to questions I don’t know.

I like to know a little bit of what I’m doing as I go.

I don’t pretend to know it all and sometimes don’t know much.

I like to give my own opinion on worldly news and such.

I comment on reality and focus on attractions.

I tell it as I see it with all the thrills and actions.

I’m only one person trying to make a difference.

I hope to accomplish this with the help of reference.

I think you figured it out by now just what I think I am.

I think I am a writer just trying to do the best I can.

Another gaze into the great unknown just might get your creative juices flowing.

I like to write fiction and am inspired by my friends;

I try not to get in too deep and leave without an end.

I research for articles when answers are in need.

I may write most anything from news to poetry.

I know my many years of living give me an added boost,

I live in a world of chaos which accompanies abuse.

I struggle to succeed the ups and I woe the downs,

I constantly remind myself I’m not the only clown.

      It might be time to move beyond thinking you are a writer and declare to the world that you are, indeed, a writer. :)

      Thanks, Amy Naylor. I must admit I wasn't counting the breaks like I usually do. It does seem to flow better if each line has the same number of syllables.

      Lovely poem and I'm sure very relatable to all of us reading!

      I stumbled a little on the last stanza as the rhythm seems to break slightly but the rest is absolutely perfect. Very well-written, well structured and well executed. I like it very much, voted up! :-)

      Faith Reaper, I'm so happy I struck the right note. I've had plenty of distractions lately. I wrote this trying to unwind. Thanks for the vote.

      Samuel hodges, thank you for your kind comment.

      Shyron E. Shenko, so glad you can relate and thank you for your vote.

      tobusiness, I'm glad you can relate as well. I have strayed from writing anything lately. Poetry usually comes easy.

      DealForAliving, I try to clear my cluttered mind and often draw a blank. I guess that's what writer's do.

      LadyFiddler, thank you so much for stopping by. It is deeply appreciated.

      I know you are a writer. What a superb poem ... profound and thought-provoking. I know I have been there many times, well, I am there now with our minds so filled with so many thoughts, that it is hard to get one down, but when they do come, watch out!

      Up ++++ and away

      Blessings
