Writing is Easier than Speaking

When I was young I wanted the spotlight.

I did whatever I could to have people notice me.

Now, not that much.

I guess that is what happens

When you want to hide from the bullies.

I never really had a specific friend I can vent out to.

Or any person really.

My parents are kind,

But our personality differences clash sometimes.

At first, I had a diary to vent out.

That didn't really work,

But then again I was still a child.

As the years passed by,

I created my own fiction.

Several novels, stories, artwork.

A way to create a world of my own.

That was my way of venting out.

It may not be spefically a certain medium.

But where is the fun sticking to one?

I trust a pen and pencil more than I trust sound.

But the beauty is how a pen and pencil

Can create anything to anyone.

We just need to see it. 

After all, for a writer,

It is easier to create a piece of literature

Than to go up and do a speech.

But sometimes we all need something like that.

Because all veiws of the world are interesting. 

And it is easier to write them all down than say them all.
