    If all I wanna do or could do was write
    Would it fight the wrongs
    My heart has battled
    Many fatal matters
    The constant chatter in the mind
    Finds words hurt
    And scar
    And heal
    And love
    But are they just writes
    Do they overcome the wrongs
    Do they conquer the verb to fight
    Syllables with no exclamation points
    Sentences that run on forever
    Proper nouns with disrespecting principles
    Questions with nothing answered
    Maybe they are just writes
    All I wanna do or can do
    Am I wrong?

    Deep sight of signs they write
    ur never wrong in da place of words
    created out of comfort and verbs
    converted into da noun of morrow
    nope ya on course.....great piece made me think

    You Write
    You write through the wrongs
    and the chatter and the songs
    you write when nothings in sight
    when days are long and cold is night
    and between the two lies lies and fright
    you write
    you write for control of what is out of hold
    when all is wrong
    you write

    Wow...I like the level of introspection in this one. Makes me question why I write....

    but you write because it is in you. it is your gift, i believe, and it shows here.

    No, Sister, you are not wrong...instead, you're alWRITE! :toast:

    I can think of much less healthy, constructive/productive ways to relieve stress, share joys and sorrows.....a cathartic "de-briefing" than the written word.
