Picking Up the Breadcrumb Sins of Unknown and Unpublished Writers


I didn’t kill myself

when things went wrong

I didn’t turn

to drugs or teaching

I tried to sleep

but when I couldn’t sleep

I learned to write

I learned to write

what might be read

on nights like this

by one like me

-Leonard Cohen
