"When I have to write, I don’t procrastinate because I am lazy; I’m just terrified of tearing out a piece of my soul and handing it over for someone else to judge. What if they hate it? What if my thoughts are dull, cliche and unorganized? I bet it sounds stupid, and they’ll think I’m stupid.
To hell with it; just give me a drink and an hour."
"I wish I could draw just so I can draw the little details people tend to miss; I want to be able to draw the little freckle on the side of someone’s neck, or their chin dimple, or the way their eyes crinkle when they smile, or how that one curl never seems to sit in place. I wish I could draw so I could draw people in all their beauty. I wish I could draw."
A poet doesn’t need the finest paper from the wisest tree
or the the sharpest pen with the thickest ink
or the most complex words from a Shakespearean dictionary
or the most complicated metaphors
all a poet needs is an honest heart and the courage to speak from that heart
knowing their words may be judged by the harshest minds
