Still, I am a writer

Writers may be accredited or published,
but that does not mean I am not a writer.

I have heard that to be a writer
you must write every day.
I do not write every day,
but still, I am a writer.

I have also heard that you must read a great deal to be a good writer.
I only read occasionally,
but still, I am a writer.

I worry about what other people think of the way I write,
but I write it anyway.

When I have no writing tools,
I write in my mind.
This usually happens at 2am.

I would love to have a cosy room
to write in,
where I can focus.
I grab a few moments
here and there,
interrupted frequently,
but still, I am a writer.

I worry about adhering to the rules of poetry,
but then I decide to write what comes
and call it poetry anyway.
