One Job

One job that could change everything

What could that be?

What would change everything, everything?

It has to be something important,

Maybe not to everyone but important to me.

I think and think and then it hits me

Smudged ink, words on a page

Writing.

 

Could that change everything?

Yes, I believe it could

Because writing to me is everything, everything.

I want to write things that are important

Things that will affect lives and things that matter to me

I love smudged ink, words on a page

Writing.

 

I want to write about everything

I want to use my words to change the world

To paint pictures, to tell stories, to write everything, everything.

Because words are important

They can build cities, tear down empires, change the world

And it's all with smudged ink, words on a page

Writing.

 

So that job, that one job that can change everything

Is writing, publishing my writing

Having people think that my writing can change everything, everything

My words are important

They can change my life, can change the world

The simple, complex, beautiful mysterious

Smudged ink, words on a page

Writing.
