I feel guilty

when my friend tells me

I’m writing for fame.

On a good day

I believe him.

On a bad day

I know it’s not true.

I began writing

to make sense of things.

It turned into a purpose

that nobody can take away from me.

It has grown

from a big baby

into a clumsy child,

who enjoys writing schoolboy poetry.

If I don’t invent a purpose for my life,

somebody else will, and that is a living hell.

      1. I don’t mind it, for a while. But then it gets old and makes you bitter. And you can’t open your heart, as a child would. 🙏❤️🌻

  1. That is so true! I just went to an internal war as I post my latest music video. I felt guilty after, but at the same time, I felt like was a purpose, more like a duty in order to release my childhood trauma. So I trusted my intuition and so far it’s the best video ever done it.
