Badge of a Good Writer

I enjoy playing in the band

And watching TV too

But my pen and notebook are always in my hand

Because writing is my favorite thing to do

Epic stories of adventure

Or short moments of suspense

I have no fear of censure

I have been told my imagination is intense

Either unfinished ideas, scribbled on a napkin

Or stories that take a week of all nighters

Each one is worth the money spent on aspirin

Sore wrists and fingers are the badges of good writers

I wear those badges with pride

Because I am the one sending the reader too far off places

All from a book I can send them world wide

But most of all I love seeing the large smiles on their faces.
