Why write?

PROMPT: Why I Write


To give myself the power of insight

To find something precious, pure and bright

Making something useful out of pain

Finding the beautiful in the mundane

To turn each fragment over like a scrap of fabric

Looking for the pattern, the trace and twist of magic

To be caught in the river, the flow and shift of words

To go fishing for a phrase and flying like a bird

To give myself a reason to keep on believing

As I walk through my life and treasure each season

To tell you I love you and then how I love you

To remember what makes me feel strong and true

Too say it proudly and shout it loudly

To flout the rules and make fools out of fools

Why write? Because I can

Because I have a heart and I am!
