A Writer's Nightmare

A Writer's Nightmare

2 mins 174 2 mins 174

Everyone has nightmares

I am also a victim of it.

A fear that needs to be conquer

One step closer to my answers

But two steps away from questions


Deliver me to the writer's quest

As I am three steps away from my final words

A storyteller who is going to end his chapters

Just wanting my story to get it published

And waiting for the readers approval


We never know the forthcoming

As I have worked arduously

To get the right words

Will my storytelling be a success?

Or will it shatter in shambles


Now let's pretend

My story never saw the recognition

All the arduous work went down in vain

I as a storyteller saw dilapidation

Who is blames for this miscarriage


But now someone takes my same story

Changed some few words and made it

I have become a victim of plagiarism

He is now a well-known writer

Well I am still digesting the truth


It is hard to see my character flourish

At the hands of another man

Feeling enraged to cry for his demise

The man of words has no words

Wanting to settle the final score


I wonder now what is there left for me?

Should I sulk and opt for legal action

But that is a long and sticky process

I am an unknown writer with no wealth

To pay the needs and meet my ends


Now he writes gibberish

And the greens fly into his pocket

For he is rich and buys everyone

Fans and flatterers all over him

He is raving on my hard work


BUT

If one person takes my book

And gives me the recognition that I soo need

It would be breathtaking for me

As I may not have an army for my defence

But still it is better than being untold


For I remember now

I am just a storyteller

Who only cares only to tell a story

Who told the story to that one person

Who knows the truth
