My favorite things are the pen and the paper.
I write the words and make them rhyme,
I write the facts about the times.
I write my sorrows, sometimes my failures,
Sometimes what moves me, or what I should savor.
I write down my goals and I cross off my deeds,
I write all my wants and notate my needs.
I write about joy, I write about pain.
I write the same notes over and over again.
Writing has always been easy for me,
It's self-expression that no one else sees.
It helps me sort the wants and the nots,
It gets me over and past the stops.
It helps me to vent when no one else cares,
It keeps my secrets when I shouldn't dare.
It brings back the memories and helps me grow,
It makes me see things that I would never have known.
