Struggling to start a novel that has a small chance of touching people’s heart

Turning away from an illustration that my eyes plant the seed for disgust in

Feeling the heavy wave of disappointment crash over me as I sit doing nothing

But what can I do when money is tight?

When businesses don’t give an amateur a chance to be a professional?

Give me a chance to prove my worth so that I may seek new talents

Talents that will draw attention and give me a sense of accomplishment

But for now, it’s still,

“What can I possibly do to make myself feel like a somebody?”

Somebody who has talents

Somebody who can achieve her dreams

Not just sit back, stuck, while everyone else achieves theirs

I don’t want to be boring old average

I want to be a somebody
