Why I Write II

I think about this all the time but sometimes I need to write it down.


Why I Write …

I write because

What I write connects me

to my feelings

Words I would never utter

or dare to say out loud


and they look at me straight in the face

I write because it helps me to relax

and play with the new words on the block

I write because I see the possibilities

I could not see before

I write because I think I might help someone else

feel better about themselves

I write because

a small voice tells me

I was meant to be a poet

and I begin to believe

it might be true.



Why do you write? I would love to read your comments.
