Who will you be today?

20 Apr

Who will you be today?

 

I am constrained by an identifier

That took consciousness and effort to announce

 

I am a writer

 

I am constrained by an identifier

That took consciousness and effort to separate

From my self doubt

 

I am not a writer

 

I am anchored now

I fight for my place here

The more I struggle

The more I sink

 

I drown

But seek no air

 

I want to be right

For I am a writer

And you can’t tell me otherwise

 

I fight to be right

For fear that I am wrong

 

I fight to be right

And sink further

 

I fight to fit the mould

But am creating cracks

 

Let the cracks become tears

And the tears become breaks

 

Let yourself float

 

Who will you be today?
