Writer At Heart (Spoken Word)

I am a writer at heart

It’s been hard

Hard to keep up my guard

I was stuck in the dark

Just trying to find my start

Trying to figure out how to make my mark

Some thought I didn’t have the smarts

But my poetry has been going for yards

They had it backwards

I’m a writer nothing less

I am bless

It’s been in my flesh

All along I knew it was in my chest

They couldn’t see it so they tried to commit theft

But I left them stressed

I been walking through the war with a bulletproof vest

Just to provide for my nest

When I realized they wasn’t there I had to find myself

I tried to turn back to please

Until I realized I was displeased

I had released my dreams

I stop believing

I had to come back because I felt like I wasn’t breathing

Like some one ripped my soul out

When I realized that someone was me

I started going hard once again

Now I’m gaining from it

I’m a writer at heart

I knew it when I picked up that pen when I was 8

I wrote my first story on that stormy night

It felt like the first time I took flight

Until I dropped the pen and seen the light

I knew it wasn’t right

I had to find me again

All the late nights up feeling pain

I knew it was something

Sitting in class feeling like something is missing

Running on that field knowing this isn’t me 

Seeing the smiles on my family face

Kept me going but my mind was in space

I had to trace back and change the pace

I found myself when I started writing speeches

It spark something I hadn’t felt in so long

My pride 

I was ready to ride

That led to the beginning of a new era

A new me
