Writers are like Fire
Writers are like fire,
Burning with a passionate flame
They weave.
Writers are wizards,
But our wands are ink and lead.
Writers are like slaves,
Bound in printed chains.
Writers are like drunkards,
Addicted to the pen and the page.
Bound in leather and numbered,
We make those masterpieces.
As a painter paints,
Somewhere a writer writes.
Writers are like tigers,
Ready to pounce on a stray idea,
Writers are like swans,
We twist and turn,
We captivate people.
We Write.

The author's comments:
I think this can be considered a description of what a writer is and does in the real world. Though we are ambiguous, we still show pieces of ourselves and it takes other people to fit the pieces together.
