I AM

“I AM”

–Amy Engle

 

National Poetry Writing Month 2018 Poem #14

 

I am creative and passionate.

I wonder how to be a better writer.

I hear my characters’ voices in my head.

I see their deepest desires and dreams.

I want to do them all justice in my books.

I am creative and passionate.

 

I pretend there are other worlds.

I feel like the ruler of these universes.

I touch and manipulate their lives.

I worry others won’t like my creations.

I cry when I can’t contain my fears.

I am creative and passionate.

 

I understand that I am still learning.

I say with confidence that I’m an author.

I dream about supporting myself on my writing.

I try to reflect and grow every day.

I hope I’m not wasting my time.

I am creative and passionate.
