i.never become a writer.
you will become a perfectionist,
picking life apart
with a magpie's eye,
hunting for the beautiful bits 
until you can make yourself
a sparkling throne
in the center of a junkyard. will write when you're sad.
you will write when you're happy.
whenever you feel something,
you will vomit the emotion out
into some sort of literature.
when you're finished,
you'll be empty
and surrounded by 
pages and pages of 
everything you once were. will try to make 
pain sound delicious,
painting over the ragged wounds
with pink paint
and candy-coat lies.

you will learn
how to decorate graveyards.
everyone will play in them,
but you alone will see the headstones.

iv.if you fall in love,
you will turn your love into a poem,
and you will always like your own words
more than you like the real person.

you'll become so selfish
you'll disgust yourself,
but you will not be able to stop.
when love finally fades away,
you'll be ready to write another poem,
one with words like "heartbroken"
and "lonely" and "giving up." will be alone
and stuck repeating
the same words you've written
a hundred times before,
and soon you'll grow
to hate each and every one.

you'll have a million poems
and absolutely
nothing to say.
Okay, I jumped on the bandwagon and decided to write one of those "never _______ a writer" poems. I was inspired by a bunch of them that I read on dA, and I noticed no one had written one about never being a writer in general, so I thought I'd give it a whirl! And I personally don't feel this way. Writing is really hard, but fun and rewarding, I think. :aww:

I feel like I'm spamming you guys because I've been posting like crazy lately. Blame it on summer and free time, I guess. Anyway, thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoyed! Drop me a comment? :heart: 

EDIT: ASWORPWQPOIEQFJGSLKDJF GUYYYYYS THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR GETTING THIS TO THE FRONT PAGE! I logged on and almost had a heart attack. Oh my goodness, thank you all so much!

I don't think you have to be a writer to do all these things, there's quite a lot of people who hide their wounds and make their life look appealing to others while they themselves hate it, and who love the fantasy rather than the person, being a writer just means that you'll turn all of this into art. Give it some sort of expression. Which can be a very good thing I think, cause that way you get to consider your own choices and well being able to find beauty in even the worst of situations certainly helps as well! ovo

PS this is the first poem about ______ a writer that I actually understand. xD

I completely understand what you're saying, but, sometimes the reason you started writing is because no one else will listen and paper won't make you feel worse.

I agree, it's good for venting

True and false at the same time for me. I love writing, but I become totally different when the urge strikes me.

Ikr? like when you're really motivated you feel like you're possessed and you just can't stop :O

This is a really interesting - and somewhat unexpected :) (Smile)  - take on writing. But sometimes, writing those million poems might be necessary in order to figure out what it is we have to say Love

Thank you very much! :huggle: I agree, sometimes it's part of growing as a writer to go through multiple struggles.
