By MissRye

To be Original
What does it take?
Must something be new?
Or could it simply be

From the heart
From the soul
Without hesitation
Plaguing the creation

Pull from the soul
And hold it close
Nurture it
Love it

Do not look at others
And exclaim
“Oh, no!
How can it be?!
For yours looks just like mine!”

For it is a lie
A trick of the eyes.
If you create from your essence
Don’t think for a second
That another’s could mimic your own.

When I read this words
They run along the same beat
Of my heart
And I know this to be true
