You Want to be a Writer 2

.

don't be like so many writers,
don't be like so many thousands of
people who call themselves writers,
don't be dull and boring and
pretentious, don't be consumed with self-
love.
the libraries of the world have 
yawned themselves to
sleep
over your kind.
don't add to that.

don't do it.
unless it comes out of 
your soul like a rocket,
unless being still would 
drive you to madness or 
suicide or murder,
don't do it.
unless the sun inside you is
 burning your gut,
don't do it.



when it is truly time,
and if you have been chosen,
it will do it by
itself and it will keep on doing it
until you die or it dies in you.

there is no other way.

and there never was.
