camp nano excitement / / i know i'm weird

why is it such a scary thing
to be
entrusted
with their story, with their love
with their hearts
they're as real as living flesh
they're as alive as could be
and i'm entrusted
to tell their tale
why is it such a scary task
to sketch out their characters
to draw their emotions
to explain a love which is new to me
sometimes
even at 6:47 in the morning
i lay here, in awe
it's like God gave me new friends
more family
another world to belong to
people i get to introduce
because i am the only one who knows them
because i am the author
why is it such a daunting thing
to show you my new family
you need to see
that they're not just normal
they have a passion
a heart
a goal
and i only have words to describe them with
but words can be enough
right?
they can change a nation, right?
they can sketch a dream
words can soften
or harden
a heart
i'm entrusted with this job
it is a scary thing
to think that i'm good enough
because guys
i'm not really a writer
i'm a realistic teenager
for now
but maybe i'll change that
and you'll see
that these characters
are more than just characters
they're telling me their story
their heart
their set goal in mind
and God?
He's holding my hand
while i'm holding the pen
