Who am I?

“The road to hell is paved with works-in-progress.”
—Philip Roth

Who am I?

They call me odd
They call me weird
I say: “off you sod”
I still won’t stop!

Writing, writing, writing
Hard at least trying
Fighting, fighting, fighting
My daily life be damned!

I may be odd
I may be weird
Maybe some day
I will get my pay

For dreaming the impossible
Is it really that unusual?
There may be some obstacles
But in the end, there may be applause

And then
I can call myself
