The poetry of a writer

Writers DNA

Writing isn’t a choice

It’s a part of you,

Tattooed into the DNA

Printed onto every organ

It’s a passion born to stay.

Writers lead two lives,

One in reality

The other on paper,

You are the lead roles

As well as the editor.

It’s an addiction

A drug you can’t forget

Armed with words,

Fantasies and hope

Embedded into ink,

From every breath

To every sunset.

It’s a beauty yet a curse

From the life you lead

To the life you dream,

The thoughts explode

From every seam.

It’s a parallel world

A portal of art,

Mirrored into your life

Scripted into your heart.

And as the author

You’ll live & experience

Everything twice.
