“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...”
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!

I'm that line of song
You knew you wanted in
But second-guessed yourself


I wander in search
Of another poet
Who will sing me to Sleep.

The author's comments:
Wanted then unwanted, then the cycle repeats. Who will forever stay with me?

A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit.

That was really sad... And the metaphors were interesting! And Lira, you don't always need a poet to be happy! Become a beautiful song yourself! And not just lines in other people's songs. Good job :)
