Sweet Baby Ambition (2013)

I want to be a writer

but I’m almost scared to say it.

As if stating the truth means I am ready for the next —

No!

Stop!

Wait!

How could I be ready for a new stage?

A relationship with words like any other with a lover or friend, fated by labels of success or failure,

labeling what could stay hidden is a hindrance —

And here I am left with the leftovers of the most delicious dreams to write, to change, to thrive.
