    A poetical Chain..

    it's simple, just say in a poetry-style, why you write...
    peace


    I write because the pen is thy sword
    Its edges cut thru' and lets the words pour.
    I write because history needs to be written into time
    I have signed my name on the pages of glory, so I know blessings are mine.
    I write, so I can grow stronger, and my lights of success shines longer
    I write so I can inspire and aspire...
    influencing others to have positive desires,
    and reach beyond the stars, going higher & higher
    I write because because it's a part of me,
    I write coz my hands dances to the beat of the heart in me.

    I write because...

    My essense is essentially found
    Between the letters of words compound
    One poetic voice can echo the world around
    And her words can make her world reknown
    I write because when my words hit the page
    My thoughts can finally take center stage
    And although my being will eventually fade
    Those words will always remain

    peace


    Sometimes I write just to test my sight
    before I begin I attach an I.V. to my arm
    so my blood leaks onto the paper, but it flows out right
    many times I write cause I can't sleep at night
    Projected, so often Astrally
    i lay down with my papyrus in case my subconcious decides to take flight
    sometimes I write to try to right what's wrong
    but when what's wrong is written
    some disagree with your Justice Cypher Born
    but really, i write to show other ways to be heard
    without a pen or a pad, I get my thoughts across like we used to do
    with the slightest vibration, before poetry or thought was a word.......

    I write because I soothe

    I eased my mind in the early years
    when thoughts I has just could not be heard

    I write Be caause with the pen in my hand
    the world is mine
    I can shape and mold the greatsest dream alive

    I write because it's life
    it's inside and the it comes alive
    and that one day you never know
    what your words did for someone else inside

    I write because it is me
    poetically, artstically, and beautifully all in one
    With a pen in my hand...every battle can be won

    So hard to explain so many thoughts in my mind at once

    ...I guess that's why I write....

    Because Writing can go on and on...

    Great Idea Naji-Man

    I write because I am poetry in motion
    The symphony strings of my heartfelt emotions
    Spill onto the page, like a magical potion
    Fingers laced through my mind, with entwining devotion

    I’m inside of the music, and the music inside of me
    It knows who I am, and I knows who it be
    It is my hearts companion, a replica of me
    A diamond inserted in the poetry sheets

    The poetry sheets, is where my heart beats
    Takes me from hard rocks, to candies so sweet
    My mind on the paper, the paper sees me
    Makes its own judgment call and writes what it sees.

    It is in my nature to express
    and sometimes confess
    my feelings and thoughts

    On days when mind feels like
    it could explode from emotions untold
    Writing empties my soul

    The moon child in me
    makes it so easy to convey
    my mental photography into words
    of love and passion unheard

    I scribe to relax because poetry always
    Points me exactly where I need to be at
    When line after line flowz so free
    I’m always excited about my
    next poetic masterpiece

    I never concern myself with how
    another may perceive it because
    my poetry is my self prescribed
    prescription for my personal healing

    One of the most relaxing things to me
    is sitting with my pen and journal
    writing poetry….

    Poetry is my secret lover
    above and under the covers
    Its something most people
    don’t know about me

    Even when I’m having writers block
    I still crave to read and write poetry
    Because I know its only momentarily
    I’m in love with nouns, adjectives, and verbs
    They are the beauty of written and spoken word

    Expressing in flow helps me grow
    Helps me to know….helps me let go…..
    Poetry will always be a special part of me

    i write because there is a need
    within me to creatively breed
    a word, a whisper, or quiet thought
    that meditation might have brought.

    see, i have gone through many things,
    and all these various thoughts need wings.
    I can't continue to contain
    these thoughts that clamor, in my brain.

    And so I write--I love haiku!
    I write for me, but dig y'all too!
    And often, all my words don't rhyme,
    but that may well improve, with time.

    Through time i scribe lines of expression
    i write off da feed of my passion
    that i so loveth to create & venture
    i write because i am a poet of truth
    i flow freely and loose
    i pen ink because it's what i do
    a gift i learn i have to write
    i could tell a story why i flow and write
    but i'll end it here tonight !

    Much enjoyed, great flows from all you talented writers!

    I write poetry
    Because so much of it flows within me
    So many emotions, experiences, and ideas
    To contain this river, would be a catastrophe

    I write poetry for so many reasons
    Nature's beauty, like the change of seasons
    The images burst in my head like a kaleidoscope
    And stick to my brain like Krazy Glue adhesions

    I write poetry because I am glad
    Because I am sad
    Because of those things I am blessed to have
    and because of those things I never had

    I write poetry
    because I live
    And as long as there is breath within me
    I hope I'll have a flow in tow to give

    I write because my pen understands,
    accepts anything I write ...with no demands.

    I sometimes write, when my heart is in much pain,
    It matters not to my paper, ...where I lay blame.

    I write sometimes when 'love lace my heart,
    those are the moments, my pen gets real sharp!

    I write because ...I have something to speak,
    and in our own way, we all are unique.

    I also write, in hopes to inspire,
    to set another persons pen on fire.

    They in turn will surely touch another,
    until we reach every single ...sister and brother.​
