Why I Write

I write,
for my thoughts to be around,
lingering in people’s mind
long after I am gone,
and my scripts,
lost under the dust
of some forgotten tome,
for someone to discover,
those raw emotions,
vivid in front of their eyes
even when years have passed by

I write,
with the hope that
after my departure from this world
my verses will be cherished,
maybe it will inspire a few,
or it will leave someone
with a thought to ponder or two

I write,
with the hope my words
maybe sometime in the future
will be read by some terrestrial beings
to understand how perplex humans emotions are
and despite all the mayhem around
how the vibrant soul never gives up

I write
for I want imaginations to leap,
liberating the mind
and igniting views from deep within,
I write for awareness,
I write for peace,
I write to instill humility,
I write to give encouragement,
and above all,
I write for love

  1. I am sure your writing will be found and cherished by an unlikely soul stumbling and searching…
    Don’t we all find our favorites that way..
    mine was when I was 18 and in a dust underground secondhand book shop in my student city of Manchester, England, that’s where I found Rabindranath Tagore…
    You shall also be found time and time again… pleasing the reader with what will seem like his/her own voice…
