    I write for fellow poets
    we struggle day to day
    I write for unheard voices
    being trampled on the way
    I write for all my loved ones
    one love is what they bring
    I write for growing children
    that blossom with the spring
    I write cause GOD permits it
    and to keep my sanity
    I write for beautiful women
    that having shared pleasure with me
    I write when I get lonely
    emptiness bothers me
    I write when I feel betrayed
    knives in backs are hard to reach
    I write cause I've felt love
    even though it runs and hides
    I write when things feel hopeless
    pressure closing in on all sides
    I write cause the sun keeps shining
    and I will not let it down
    I think I write my best @$%#
    when no one is around
    I write cause "Norah's" lovely
    I "Jones" whenever she sings
    I write cause I think poetry
    is one of world's finest things
