My father told me that I've been singing since I was three, and I've always wanted to be a performer since then. Now that I'm a grown-up while looking through my documents I stumbled upon a folder: "Lyrics & Poems" My forgotten craft when I was a teenager. I still write lyrics whenever I'm inspired, and they're for my own eyes only. But here I am, sharing my innermost, deepest, darkest, and most cringe-worthy thoughts about friendship, heartbreak, pain, wishful thinking, love, and life, in general. xoxo, J.A.

Not Good at Anything

Been telling stories since I was eight
Been reading books I couldn’t understand till I was twelve
Been playing songs since I was ten
Been writing lyrics that made no sense till I reached fourteen

All the things I learned from films
In all the journeys I have been
With all the bad endings of my beginnings
I knew what I’ve got with me

I may not be good at writing poetry
But I can paint words that will jump off the pages
I may not be good at anything
But I can show places you have never been

I was fifteen when I had realized
That I could do more than just sing
With all the worlds I see in my mind
I pour it all in my notebooks and wasted ink

With all my bad prose and plot holes
I tried to fix but they’re in disarray
I’d picture you right there in a stall
Still holding onto the arms of a stranger

And the only thing I could do
Is write what I would think of you
Silently hoping the odds will take a turn
A turn to me and open up my world

Dracyy: Not your typical high school drama. Yeah there are the usual bullies and such but the focus is the sweet story unfolding between the main characters. Really adored the interaction between them and the ever evolving personalities. I’m looking forward to reading the next in the series.
