"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."

Please shut up
Listen to my voice
let it was your soul
you really have no choice

Close those dimond eyes
keep your mouth at rest
I know it may be hard
but could you try your best?

Cause once I found my voice
(It took me so much time)
I'm never letting go
all these words are mine
