What's Our Motive for Writing: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


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 we are

and give substance to a boring day

by getting closer to someone very far.

Others have discovered a thrill

in comments with a friendly 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.
