Confessions of an Insecure Writer

To write is to educate. This means, it indeed is a noble work.

For this reason, as a writer, I am very insecure about my readers.

I Secretly Wish I Am Wrong

I don’t want to guide people. I want to guard them.

I don’t want to train people. I want them to be the master.

I don’t want them to follow me. I want them to lead me.

I don’t want them to read my work. I want to read their success stories.

I don’t want to leave a legacy. I just want to touch their heart.

I don’t want to be the healer. I want them to be the strongest.

I don’t want to educate. I just want to inspire.

I don’t want to light the fire. I want them to be the fire.

I don’t want to give them water. I want them to be the sea.

I don’t want to give them hope. I want them to be the hope.

I don’t want to give them the lights. I want them to be the sun.

I don’t want to attract them. I want them to be attractive.

I don’t want to push them. I want them to be moved.

I don’t want to force them. I want them to be the force.

I don’t want to motivate them. I want them to be the excitement.

I don’t want to be God. I want them to be immortal.

I don’t want them to revolve. I want them to evolve.

I don’t want them to seduce. I want them to deduce.

I don’t want to be an excuse. I want them to introduce.

I don’t want to spark joy. I want them to be the spark.

I don’t want them to enjoy my work. I want them to employ.

I don’t want them to be the strongest. I want them to be powerful.

And, this could only happen when I make them think. The surefire way to make them think it to be wrong.

For This Reason,

  1. I secretly wish I make mistakes. So that reader’s correct me.
  2. I secretly wish I get banned. So that readers don’t be misguided.
  3. I secretly wish I have zero readers so that readers can be their leaders.
  4. I secretly wish to gently touch their heart and change their world.
  5. I secretly wish them to not come back to read me every day.
  6. I secretly wish I lie to make them fly, but apply.
  7. I secretly wish I am a loser so that my readers are not.
  8. I secretly wish to fail more so that I can be their shield.
  9. I secretly wish to get zero reads to improve my work for them.
  10. I secretly wish to be wrong. So that reader’s correct me.

I secretly wish to gently touch their world and change them but not become their world and kill them.
