Another poetry chain...

I write not because I always want to

...but I write because I'm scared

...that if I don't,

my thoughts will get sharper and punture my mind,

shrink my brain...

then lose my memory!

Why I write

In the cruel darkness of

Lonely nights

In empty beds

Unheard voices torment my sleep

Injecting peaceful dreams

With gruesome memories of the past

So I write

In the illusion of temporary safety

Bloody images

Of faraway places

Intrude my well being

And rape my empathic heart

So I write

Out of protest

Against manipulated minds fighting a cause

That has been misinterpreted

By fundamentalist turned terrorists

I write

Out of the depths of my mind

Against ignorance

And one-sided histories

I write

I write

Because I wonder

What the difference is they see

Between Catholic crusaded of the Dark Ages

and Muslim crusades on ink covered news pages

Besides technology

I write

Because I fail to understand

How wealth can turn a man

Into a self proclaimed king

Guarding the riches for the rich

Judging the poor for the creativity

To escape their monetary captivity



As long as people go places

Where they weren’t born nor raised

And claim it as theirs

I’ll write

As long as people see races

And claim to be superior than

The beautiful variety of ethnic faces

I’ll write

I write

Because poetry is art

And I am an artist

I write

Because there is unseen dimension

In the world of paper and pen

And I’m a adventurer



Me equals poetry

I write

Because I breathe

I write

Because I can

I write

Because

I AM…

I write for the love

love of freedom of expression

a way to release agression

and sexual tensions

and did i mention

i write

for you to understand my state of mind

at that point in time

because it differs from every rhyme

but as long as you notice

i write

for all the inbetween

and all forgotten dreams

not heard of but told

i write

for all the bullshit sold

and for the people that are here to break the mold

forever changeing

forever racing

forever fighting

im writing

for you you him and her

its not absurd

i write for all yall to hear my words.

If i knew why i wrote

I probably would not be writing.

The first time i wrote a poetic note,

It was because i planned on dying.

If i knew why i wrote

Would i really be striving

so hard to end each day on a positive note

and leave every acquaintance smiling

If i knew why i wrote

could that explain to me

Why "normal" people gloat

When people like me go to therapy

If i knew why i wrote

Could that explain to me

Why i hunt from and yet quote

Those words thay all said to me

I wish i knew why i write

I would save on therapy fees

I would save on wasted tears

I wish i knew why i wrote.

I write because the pen is thy sword

Its edges cut thru' and lets the words pour.

I write because history needs to be written into time

I have signed my name on the pages of glory, so I know blessings are mine.

I write, so I can grow stronger, and my lights of success shines longer

I write so I can inspire and aspire...

influencing others to have positive desires,

and reach beyond the stars, going higher & higher

I write because because it's a part of me,

And when i write, my hands dances to the beat of my heart in me.

I write life on tombs and graves

I write love on divorced and separated couples

I write wisdom on brain dead minds

I write healing on hospitals and ICU walls

I write light on blind sights

I write songs of praise and sing them in funerals!

I write demonic languages and speak them in tongues :evil:
