I could be doing this for years

Sometimes, when I am alone,

I think,

That if I don’t succeed,

That if I don’t make it,

I might be doing this for years.

 

This.

Writing.

It’s addictive.

 

Sometimes I wish I never started.

Sometimes I wish I was well-adjusted,

Well-liked,

Friendly,

Or even sane.

I would settle for sane.

 

I look at the work I’ve done, and

The work I have yet to do and think,

“God, I could be doing this for years.

I could end up alone, and homeless, and unsuccessful and jaded;

I could waste my life and have it equate to nothing.

Or I could just get a profession and play it safe.”

Then I shrug, and keep writing.

 

Sometimes, When I’m alone,

I think:

“God, I could be doing this for years.”

And smile.
