I am

I am creative and scared.
I wonder what’s out there,
I hear a whisper
I see nothing but darkness.
I want everything but the light.

I am a writer.
I pretend I am worthy-
I feel I am not.
I touch the light with a ten foot pole.
I worry it will bite me.
I cry at the sight of a friend.

I am afraid of the winnings
I understand the stakes, and
I say I don’t mind, but
I dream of leaving. And
I try to hold on, as
I hope to God I won’t fall.

I am creative, and scared.
