Starting Point

It started like a queep, and you turn a geek in the eyes of freaks. Your scribbling was infantile,
and your mind was blank.
Scornful people are jealous souls,
for your works tethers and blinds their imaginations, for nothing so interesting they can grasp.
Never divuge your pen-manship to a fool, lest your works be rated a dummy. Pretend to be shy, and hide everything,
for spoilers and sadists come in glowing cloaks; to kill, steal, and to destroy.

[Hata Bildir]
