    Why you write mann

    Why?

    I write for the love, first
    And I got a thirst
    To quench
    No gator can aid me when I’m cut
    By life
    And so I have to replay that strife
    So someone else won’t feel the same pain
    And my loss is another’s gain
    And the pain I felt is happiness
    Cuz whateva happen make me strong long time
    And I write to inspire myself to the finish line

    I write for the same most poets write
    Sharing something they may not understand
    And I write to understand my own language
    And when I don’t I keep writing in anguish
    Never the block to the writer
    But I love the fact cat’s feel writer’s block
    And how it comes to life and I bring the street to them
    I write to teach, to be an emcee and show the street ruin
    To prove everyone wrong who said I didn’t know what I was doing
    To show and tell my story in the kindergarten understanding
    This reading rainbow of colors I paint on the manican
    You, the reader and the unspoken speaker is an unspoken reader
    But when you a speaker you read and reek a, and they can’t eureka
    And vacuum and sweep ya
    Why?

    I think this piece speaks to all poets, and the reasons we write. I'm definitely feeling this. ^5 brotha.
