Favorite Quote:
I will become, what I know I am' Michael Jordan

For What do I write?
Passion or glory?
What do I gain
From writing a story?

The writers all claim
'Its not about the money we make'
We are not so vain'
But stop writing in enjoyment's sake
In exchange for their 'big break'

'The Break'
what does it earn?
Does it prove you've got talent?
Can't you discern?
Just a cash balance?
A small one at best
Nothing but money,
and empty respect?

Is there nothing more?
To this excellent art?
Is there nothing more?
It has to impart

Hard work for poor wages
Is that all there is?
Big push for small favours
Is that how we live?

Don't give in
There's more to it than wealth
The words of within
Declaration of self

Unleash your spirit
On these un-ready bigots
All of your fire
Your darkest of nights
All of your splendour
Your brightest of lights

This isn't a show
Not a pointless precession
I'm not here for votes
I'm here for expression
