I got tons of projects.
Sifting through dozens of rejects.
Damn, I can't believe all these neglects.
I'm a writer.
I favor the comedies
Cause it fills up my empties
Spreading joy and jollies
To those who need a laugh.
I do have some struggles
Pulling the wizards out of the Muggles
Growing weary with the juggles
Of keeping my house lit.
My stories may be rotten
But to me, they’re t-shirts - 100% cotton
Which is why I’ve never forgotten
As a writer, I have no choice but to press on.
Tho lately my resolve's been extra puny
But just like that, I met this community
And now I feel like I've been granted some immunity.
High on the unity, I realize I don't have to press on alone.
So thank you for including me in this Top Ten.
I hope, at the very least, I made you grin.
Great Mother, what an exciting night it’s been!
Can I get a Hallelujah?
