    I
    write
    for the pleasure
    when all that is pent up is given
    freedom
    I
    write
    for cleansing
    of the things within
    that fracture a heart and cloud a
    thought
    to
    solace
    a lone soul that longs for
    a home
    I
    write
    for understanding
    to forget as much as I can
    to forgive as I’m able the wrong that is done
    to neutralize hurt before it roots
    into hate
    I
    write
    for healing
    to touch and be touched
    as read words can only do when all else has been used
    I
    write
    to listen
    to hear what needs to be
    heard
    I
    write
    what I see
    because it moves me
    and what inspires me might
    inspire those who take time to read what I write
    I
    write
    because I must
    when I don’t it doesn’t feel right
    thus I pen what I feel
    as a result of what I am

    a writer

    so...

    I
    will
    write
    and
    write
    'til
    there’s

    no

    more

    Life

    I
    write
    because i am
    and what i feel inside
    I
    write
    to express my feeling
    flow what i know by reasons
    to give and revist as a reader
    I
    write
    to send a message
    even words of soul confession
    to change what i can
    to love and understand
    I
    write
    because i love to create
    bring hope and a mate
    to share all we make
    shower words nothing fake
    I
    write
    to bring artistic flava
    lines of love one can savor
    even from da dept of my emotion
    I
    write
    to stop inner explosion
    raise awareness and self liberity
    so i
    write
    and
    write
    til
    death
    do
    us
    part
    I
    write

    For all those reasons why you write, I found myself nodding with every line. You posed this in such a way, that every writer can relate. And, of course I must say, thank goodness for each and every reason why you write poetess.

    mah kin...

    I write to release the river within

    I write for the pleasure
    That others will share
    So, I share ALL of me
    And wonder if they care

    I write for the love
    And beauty of the game
    (one word) plus (two words) = (more words)
    In that vein

    I write to touch
    And be touched in return
    Though public approval is nice
    It’s not my greatest concern

    I write for ME
    (I can be selfish that way.:) )

    I write...

    from the heart
    little bits of me
    of love
    my conscious
    various inspirations
    that touch me deeply

    I write...

    as a poet
    the wonders of life
    the fragrance of a rose
    the glorious sunshine
    the stillness of the night

    I write...
    to enhance my
    ability to dream
    of hopeful tomorrows
    and the joy
    each
    day
    brings​


    As writers...writing is....the gift to share of ourselves

    Coco, you have given much in inspiration & talent.
    thank you....​
