NaPoWriMo Day 6

Untitled
I've never liked to imitate
The copy ends up second-rate
I don't seem to have a choice
I can't write in another voice
I only speak in my own voice

I am writing for myself and strangers

I don't consider it flattery
but rather a form of battery
Creating tone-deaf off-key noise
I can't write in another voice
I only speak in my own voice

I am writing for myself and strangers

An exercise in futility
Inhibits my ability
Ad with confidence I rejoice
I can't write in another voice
I only speak in my own voice

I am writing for myself and strangers
