Today's poem is a throwback. I wrote it exactly ten years ago, back when I was fifteen. I had then been struggling with writing the book that I finally finished this year, A Story Untold.
My biggest fear back then was that I wouldn't be able to capture the true emotions and souls of my characters, as well as the fear that I might not make a good author in the end. I'm happy that it all turned out well, and I'm glad for that fear for it made me strive even harder, and pushed me to grow into what I've become.
