poem: I Would Like To Be A Writer

I Would Like To Be A Writer
i would like to be a writer
but i cannot seem to
discipline myself to
write something good enough
i have a pile of journals
that i cannot part from
because they are a part of me
i would like to share them
with other people
who will get something
out of what i have written
THEN
i will know that i am
somebody
who has stories
that need to be read
stories i long to share
THEN
i will know for sure that
i am a writer.
