    I hate writing poetry but I'm addicted you see,
    revealing what I think and what I feel inside me.
    Its gotten so bad, I awake in the night,
    in search of my pen where I begin to write.

    Sometimes I write lines and just throw them aside,
    surprised by the thoughts that I hold deep inside.
    Surprised by the hours that take up my time,
    and why I write with this rythme that people call rhyme.

    I hate the very idea of writing things down,
    knowing darn well what I write will be found.
    Knowing in advance there's no way to conceal,
    my dreams, thoughts and passions that fight to be real.

    But what am I to do, I'm addicted you see,
    yet I hate writing poetry for the world now to see.
    Have you ever felt this way, do you really want to write,
    or is your hand just suddenly moving from the inner force inside?

    I know I can't be the only one to ever feel this way,
    addicted to a thing I hate that drives me everyday.
    I'll forgive myself for writing me, revealing me to me,
    but the truth is that I really hate that I write poetry.

    Peace

    Driven to write, your words drive that point right home.

    I am thinking these words are speaking to me, Kenyatta. Especially at night when you wake up and just have to write your words down. Luv it!!
