Hi everyone, I’m sharing another poem with you today. The inspiration for this one came from the question, ‘why do you write?’ to which my mind threw up a multitude of answers – the most prominent being that I write for clarity. I write to understand and to be understood, and it also helps to order my thoughts.
Anyway, I here’s the poem, I hope you enjoy it!
I bring myself to the literary stage
To express myself upon the page
For inside me a tempestuous war is waged
And my weapon is the pen
My heart, I pour for all to see
To ease the emotional toil in me
The dream is to, at last, be free
To create a mental state of zen
So, I hold the weapon above the white
And sit in the dimness of bedroom light
Until I feel the urge to write
And then exercise my soul again
As always, thanks for reading my words, I appreciate you spending your time here!
Until next time
