Do we write To make others think Original thoughts Poured into Poems Creativity Poured into words Do we write To create something new
Or do we write to grab attention Appeal to what's already built Follow the same rutted paths For the sake of Attention A fierce human need A beast that can corrupt For the sake of food And can destroy creativity Just to follow another's path Just to be known To be seen
Or do we write for Both Blending our own ideas With those of others Hoping to be heard
And what makes popularity? What is it that grabs our attention And pulls us in And makes us lose ourselves For the sake of being known?
What fun this is! To have people cheering following believing in your vision! Fueling your ambition!
It's like all the voices that doubted you are done! And you and your supporters are just having fun as you dance while you fail and dance while you succeed, and you just become filled with a pleasant greed and motivation as you feel like you an your dreams are set in full motion!
... But how devastating it all becomes when this all goes in an instant and everyone gets distant and bored because they never really cared if you scored.
In a time like this you remember that you are always on your own, and the only people that might have cared were just you and your folks back at home.
