I Want to Write

I just want to write
I want to be eloquent and beautiful
and have a way of expressing myself that leaves people breathless
I want to couch my ideas in the gorgeous language they deserve
I want to let my agonies be known to the world
I wish to scream them from the rooftops, in hymnals of my sorrows
I wish everyone to feel my anguish, my pride, and my pain
I wish to show the world I am worthy of their respect,
and to show them I deserve only the very best
I wish to write my story and tell it so
it resonates with all those listening
I want to pour out my tears not through my eyes,
but rather through the ink in my pen
I wish not to laugh with my lungs
but with words that dance across the paper
I want to empathize, to understand, to create,
to feel, to dazzle and finally
to write
