I Want To Be A Writer

‘I want to be a writer, Mom
Is there a secret trick?’
‘The trick, my girl, is just to write
To write through thin and thick.’
‘But what if I get writer’s block
What if the page stays empty?’
‘Then write about what’s in your head
You’ll find that there is plenty’
‘But what if it’s not good enough
And rambles like a letter?’
‘What’s good is in the reader’s eye
Besides, you’ll just get better’
‘I want to be a writer, Mom
But my friends might not agree’
‘When you wake up and want to write
A writer you will be’
