Why I Write

I write to free my heart and mind, sustain my sanity
Clustered ideas throng my cranium, legion emotions surge
Voices becloud me, writing them extracts meaning

I write to speak to man, I write to be human
To convey blossoming buds, to apprise caged spirits
To sing of his merriment, to mourn his sorrow

I write to speak from my soul's depths, to reveal my substance
To share my sacred thoughts, to expose my foibles
My eccentricities and idiosyncrasies, my flaws

I write for no reason, I write for no cause
I rummage through my mind, most times at odd places and times
Stumbling upon undecided thoughts, arresting them into meaning
I write because words are the only things I have
I can mock kings, I can soothe a tiger
I can paint, I can create--just like God!

I love this one so much, especially the last stanza. Your words are so powerful that you are richly blessed, even when they are "all you've got".......they will take you far and with them, you can fly!

I am humbled, Koko. Tororot will lead the way.
