Ambition - Poem by Lubinda Lubinda

Moved by an insatiable appetite he always felt invigorated to write so, he settles down and jots the constant flow of thoughts that emanated from his heart and carefully recorded them and he put them together with his other works of art! See, people couldn't really tell whether or not he was using a magic spell or some sort of incantation because he never lacked inspiration nor the motivation while others thought he was inspired by divine revelation! Maybe that why, he'd write about anything and almost everything with ease! He was constantly writing something and his hands were on fire because, they would never tire nor did they ever lose their ability to write! He continued to write piece after piece like an addict he was a 'chained writer' that loved writing more than anything else in the world that he wrote and wrote and often forgot to do other things! Till one morning he was found dead with a paper and pen in his hand and his last piece where he prophecied his end in a piece entitled: 'glued to the pen! '
