The Faith of a Writer

Who do I think I am?
Builder of worlds, architect of plots, promiser of better
I flesh out characters I love and give them a voice
They go where they want but I say: The End
What gave me the right to do that to them?

Who do I think I am?
Withholder of dreams, creator of tension, chronicler of evil
I set them in dark places so they know who they are
So they can break down the walls and overcome in the end
What gave me the right to choose that for them?

Who do I think I am?
