I am a Journalist

Thomas Zakowski

I am a journalist


I record others people’s’ stories

I see it in their eyes

I hear it in their voice

I follow their actions


I am a journalist

Staying up reading

Inquiring definitions

Digging deeper

To get the full story


I am a journalist

The words I type

Roll off my fingers

On to the paper

For others to read


I am a journalist

Comforted by the clicking of keys

Getting the facts right

Satisfied with my story


I am a journalist

Hidden behind a screen

Working by a deadline

Hoping others read my story

And it enlightens their minds.
