I Swear

I’m going to write a book.
Things I’ve seen,
words I’ve heard,
hearts and minds and stories.
I don’t know what shape it’ll take in the end,
but there’s some fun in that —
in knowing and not knowing at the same time.
I’ve always been afraid
that I have nothing to say.
That there’s nothing new to add
to this world’s library.
But the beauty of life and language and people
is that there isn’t anything new.
It’s the same story told from a million perspectives,
and I want to know mine.
