I am the master of your destiny,
The destroyer of your world,
The thief who robs your sentences,
So your story won’t be told.
I am the cutter of your scene,
The one who stopped your character short,
I am the one who killed the hero,
And now his lesson won’t be taught.
I am the bridge between your fantasy,
And the deadline looming near,
I am the one who’ll bring you closer,
To that blooming, frustrated tear.
The catcher of your spelling mistake,
The one who finds your double-spaces.
The mover of your apostrophe,
Trying your words in other places.
I am a necessary evil,
That you’ll put off ’till the end.
I am part of your self-loathing,
Although I’ve tried to be your friend.
I can give you time to do it,
But only you can take it forward.
I am hard work and I know it,
But with hard work comes reward.
