Are You Picking Up What I’m Putting Down

I wish I had someone to do the dumb stuff

Like backup my computer

This takes too long

I was thinking that I

could be doing something else

when I realized

that I am

I write so much sometimes

I don’t even realize I’m doing it

Today is November 12th, 2013

I look at all those who’ve made it


and I think

“They aren’t any different than me.

If they did it, so could I.

I just want to write.” If I could sit home

and write

and not

have to do anything else

to make a living.

I’d choose writing

It may not seem like much

but it is so much more

Are you picking up

What I’m putting down
