Our Motive for Writing: A Poem

Val enjoys writing rhymed poetry with a valuable message in it.


Every writer should know their target. Aim for the heart --hit that and all which follows is sheer ecstasy.

-- Muse

What's our motive for writing

is it something to monetize

maybe we find it exciting

or even hope for a prize.

Is it need for recognition

or some other secret goal

maybe in a little mission

to share some of our soul.

To some it may be the way

to show the best of who they are

and give substance to a boring day

by getting closer to someone very far.

Others have discovered a thrill

in moments with a generous praise

and yet to some others it's a way to chill

while life is going through a disturbing phase.

Well, don't bother revealing your reasons

to a stranger that I most certainly must be

we all have our different creative seasons

so, like me, keep alive your writing spree.
