The writer, a poem by Tracy Diane Miller

The writer sees the world
Through the power of words
To name experiences
Emotions deserve to be heard
Of characters
Of plots
Of poems
All of them journey in the writer’s brain
To unite with a Muse
For the world to gain
To sleep
To awake
A short story
A novel
A poem
Is born
Make no mistake
I will not write
As a measure of fame
What I write
Because the essence of me
A part of my name
