It took a crayon and paper to
Discover how much I love to draw.
Mom found my Picasso-inspired art
On a white, living room wall.
At ten years old I had
A heavy passion for animation.
Becoming an animator at Disney’s studio
Was my all-time aspiration
Years went by and my skill made me bitter
Too many people took advantage of my talent
Draw this! Draw that! Draw! Draw! Draw!
Absent appreciation made me say, “I’ve had it!”
Although I no longer draw at all,
I’ve never lost my creativity
Several years into school and work
Writing became the biggest part of me
Occasionally I will draw for fun
But I focus my attention on writing
I’m working on my first adventure novel
And I find it so freaking exciting!
