when i little i remember the first book

that i ever could read by myself


and i remember a spark that lit up my world

as i discovered new ones



when i was eight i wrote down stories

in a black and white notebook

mouthing the words that twisted into something

that was strange and wonderful


when i was eleven i wrote my first poem

and traced each inky letter with my fingertip


and when i was fourteen i wrote my first book

putting my name fearlessly under the title


~how a writer is born
