Write To Live (Poem)


As birds use their wings
And push against the wind
Involuntarily flying
To fulfill some need within

As a lion must roar
To express its inner musings
Like the ocean waves bellow
Trodding back and forth in amusement

Do I write for recognition?
So that the world will know my name?
No, I write for the wind
Who knows know meaning of the word fame

When I was a girl
Before I could dream
The love of the pen was etched
Into my heart seams

In the world I flow
Through each of my hand picked roles
But alone I am an artist
Through my pen I inspire, excite and provoke

I write to breathe
I write to give
But above all
I write because I have to live
