i was wondering if any of you are the same way. i like to write poetry and lyrics but i don't want anyone i'm close to, to read them. i'll keep a piece of paper in my pocket and my mom will take them to throw them in the laundry and take the damn thing out and leave it on the counter for anyone to see and i don't want her or any relatives reading it, i wish she'd stay out of my stuff so i don't have to find a hiding spot. anyway do any of you hide your talents from those close to you to avoid embarrassment, mockery or just out of plain fear of what they think or say? and because i do this people think i don't have ambitions in life because i don't want to tell them i want to be a musician so to them i just don't know what the hell i'm going to do in life but really i'm more ambitious than anyone i know, i just don't let it show.
