Message from Writer

Im 15 years old and i have been writing since i was 9. I turned to writing as a coping mechanism, i enjoy writing songs, poetry, and essays. My strongest compassion is music, as i refer to it as my better half. Writing saved me, as my moon during dark nights and my sun during light times. Writing gives me my voice in the world and i'd be lost without it. Of course my dream is to be a famous song writer or writer, but even if i never make it there i still get so much out of it. Everyone asks what you would grab if your house is on fire, for me it's a no brainer; my songbook.

Put your hand on your heart. 
Do you feel that. 
You're breathing. 
You're alive.
But are you living?
When you wake up, what's your first thought?
Do you wanna go back to sleep. 
Or do you wanna get up and start the day. 
Do you wanna just make time fly by.
or is 5 more minutes what you say. 
Are you grateful you got to wake up again.
or are you mad because you didn't get to sleep in. 
This is gonna sound cheesy. 
but glass half full, 
or glass have empty. 
Live, laugh, love. 
Or die, cry, envy.
Tomorrow isn't promised. 
You could die after reading this line. 
That's just me being honest. 
Are you still here?
What would you say looking back in 5 years. 
Would you be proud.
or would you burst into tears. 
I'm gonna ask again. 
glass half full, or glass half empty?
You're so focused on the water in the glass.
Its your life,
and your times running out.
Stop spending so much time worrying about how much waters in the cup.
and enjoy it before it all dries up.
