What Makes Me Write

what-makes-me-write

I questionmyself,

Why am I writing?

Not once, Not twice, but many times.

I am not a writer

Not even dreamt of being one.

So why am I writing?

The answer came from my inner soul.

“ In this short span of life,

You have seen many things.

The good ones are less,

The bad ones are more.

Before your soul gets saturated with disheartening feelings and experience,

Let it out from your heart,

Let it out before its too late.”

Then works my Brain.

“You better start writing

I know you speak less.

Let the tears roll down as you write,

Let the bad memories leave the soul.

Fill in good days, fill in happiness.

Let writing be the weapon to cope with your loneliness.”

So here I am writing,

From my heart and soul.

So here I am writing,

To relax myself and to help me reach my goal.

We all write for various reasons. Your reason, as Lorna expressed, is serving you well. You expressed it beautifully.

Absolutely true! Most of us do write to express our pent up feelings and thoughts. Sometimes it's necessary to release our emotional load so that we can breath again and stay sane. At other times the writing comes out of love and the mere joy of it. Very well written!

Words spoken from the heart can cleanse the soul. It has a relaxing and peaceful effect which clears the mind. Your poem perfectly describes why you write and how it affects you. Well written.

Good one, Soumak. Writing cleanses and clears up - thoughts, emotions, memories .... sparkles insights within and strengthens.

Keep writing. Best wishes and blessings.

Yes, let the bad memories leave your soul through the magic words.

Lovely piece.

Sannyasi, we all have different reasons for needing to write. Some of us call ourselves writers, others are uncomfortable doing so. You have a very worthy reason to write, so keep doing it.
