Others

Read by Ebony Stewart

I write other people’s love stories

Like I don't have one of my own.

I wait for other people to stop talking

Before saying I love you.

I have my troubles

But feel other people’s problems are more important.

I sing, I write and

I am proud

But I don't show off

Because I know other people are

Writing and singing

In their own troubled way
