I’ve Always Seen Myself As A Writer

Growing up, I wanted to be a writer. I wanted to write. I loved creative writing. I still do.

Over the years, I’ve seen my work change before my eyes. I’ve come so far. Of course, there’s so much further for me to go.

No matter what I do or don’t do in the years to come, I’ll still make writing a priority. I have no reason to rush the creative process. I can stop and smell the roses. I should enjoy this seemingly endless rollercoaster ride. I have to appreciate the highs as well as the lows.

I don’t know much. I do know that when I don’t write, I don’t feel right.

I wonder what kind of writing I’ll pursue further. Creative or professional? Something in between? Something else entirely? We’ll see.

I don’t want to regret not taking a risk, so I have to try at the very least. I don’t want to ask what if for the rest of my life.

I wish I could do everything, but I can’t. I just try to prioritize writing when possible. I don’t mind sacrificing other things. I’m even fine studying less if that means writing more. I suppose I’ve always seen myself as a writer.

Meant To Be | A Poem

I can do it again

This isn’t the end

I only lose

If I don’t move

I had nothing before

Now I fight for more

I’ll let life make me

Who I’m meant to be

Mirages | A Poem

Why is it so hard to change what I hate?

To become someone different but still okay.

Why do I always blame myself?

Never point the finger at anyone else.

How do I go on every day?

Without giving up, losing faith.

Is there a secret I don’t know?

Some sort of shortcut to take.

Have I ever seen a miracle?

I memorized these mirages though.

Good Luck | A Poem

Didn’t let the past bring you down

Because you believed what’s done is done

Wasn’t worried about things to come

Knew you could conquer

Felt you had won

Put so much faith in yourself

Wouldn’t trust anyone else

Since they didn’t see

Every hit you took

They talked about being tired

Yet remained bad liars

So you wished yourself good luck

And walked away without looking back

Creative Writing

Never Know | A Poem

All right

Good enough

Look ahead

Same plans

Different path

Adapt now

Nothing lasts

Sustain hope

Rise above

Be better

Hard task

Be glad

Never know

Complete strangers

Kind souls

Made Memories | A Poem

I made memories,

and I’m not sorry.

If given the chance,

I’d do it again.

But I will cherish

those few seconds

because I found my faith

in the most unexpected place.

Creative Writing

At The Beginning | A Poem

At the beginning

just getting started

inspiration in the air

got to kindle the fire

make the flames burn

into the winter

better than before

no intention to break

what isn’t broken

can’t see too far ahead

but I know

I’ll get where I need to go.

My Own Happiness | A Poem

I’m closer to where I want to be

Not as far as before

I dream of a better time

I doubt I’ll ever stop

Proud of my progress

I have so much further to go

Still I’ve never shied away from hard work

I can’t help but think my time is coming

I’ll put the pieces together

Spread my wings and fly

Find all the ways I can enjoy life

While I cultivate my own happiness
