I Wish I Never Was a Writer

 

I wish I never was a writer,

At times it’s very lonely

My family works from 9 to 5

And I’m the one and only

 

I wish I never was a writer,

Now freed from writer’s block

I’d take the deepest breath I could,

No race against the clock

 

I wish I never was a writer,  

Thoughts would leave my head

Anxiety now settles down;

Imaginations dead

 

I wish I never was a writer,

It sparks from feeling pain

Stability does not exist

But now it shall remain

 

I wish I never was a writer

With no massive threat

Pursue a very simple path,

And never break a sweat

 

I wish I never was a writer,

With nothing to delete

A pencil hardly ever used

Now comfort in my seat

 

I wish I never was a writer –

Determined to be free

Unlock the doors that keep me in

For I would hold the key

 

I wish I never was a writer,

Always seeking more

A simple task it would become

And not a stressful chore

 

I wish I never was a writer,

For it has been a thought

But it’s a part of who I am

And that cannot be taught
