Beginners Hopes

Is it my job in life to create something?

What was life like before celebrity?

What if I leave this world without making a dent?

Like the billions before me my name will be dust

Are my words worth something?

Does the work I am doing matter?

What is the goal?

Am I truly creative or just regurgitating the same thoughts as the billions before me that weren’t listened too?

Growing up doing musical theater I always gravitated towards the art world. I've been writing poetry my whole life but didn't know it.

Having a home filled with spirituality and Judaism have given me an outlook on life that wouldn’t have otherwise. My religion has given me strength, knowledge, and wisdom that helps me appreciate the sunshine each day and feel the emotions I put into my writing.
