Poem -

I HAVE WON

I HAVE WON

I sit with a pen and paper staring out the window at the birds,
Reminiscing about the times people inspired me with just some words,
So when I write,
I like to be alone in the quiet,
Let my mind be set free,
And start to express me,
Words I didn't think could be,
Fall into place,
And when people read your writing they don't see no face,
Just a sentence with such grace,
This poem becomes my trace,
I'm not chasing the fame,
This world ain't no game,
I'm just tryna change what's always been the same,
I'm holding my flame,
But I ain't looking to be number one,
Just doing what I love and if just one person is touched by what I write then I have WON!
