**A while back, someone commented on a 6 Word Story and challenged me to write a 55 Word Story instead. Yesterday, I was reading through and his comment caught my eye. So, I give you “Writing Poems.”
Before I realized who I was,
I used to belittle myself for writing poetry.
“Nobody will read this,
nobody will care.”
But I guess somewhere
along the line I finally realized;
writing stopped being about
other people a long time ago.
From then on,
I was a poet–
with an empty notebook for an audience.
