“Be careful what you pretend to be because you are what you pretend to be.”
I acted like a writer.
Put pen to paper.
Agonized over plot line.
Fretted over character development.
Looked for names with meaning.
I spent time in the form of hours, days, weeks and years.
There was a time I acted like a friend.
I reached out to you.
Listened to woes and joys.
Celebrated your success
and prayed during your struggles.
Today I still do.
