You can write with a pencil, a stick or a pen,
You can cross it all out and write it again.
You can write about good or funny or bad,
You can write when you’re happy or puzzled or sad.
You can write in a bus or a train or a car,
You can write on a beach or wherever you are.
You can write with a smile or a tear or a frown,
You can write standing up, you can write lying down.
You can write as day breaks or as owls hoot at night,
You can get it all wrong, you can get it half-right.
But, however you feel, you can write!
You can write, you can write, you can write!
