Why I Write

Image Source

If I am having a crappy day
Or when every thing is going alright
I do not ponder over it too much
I feel happy when I just write

Poetry takes over me completely
Elevating my day from drab to bright
Everything seems to be sorted
When I just sit down and write

Fiction is a challenge to me
But in a dark room it is my lone light
I think of characters and their quirks
The story just flows when I write

Weird people are my favorite topic
I write about them without a fright
I only talk about what actually happened
I don't see why I should not write

It helps me clear the chaos in my mind
Be it during day or in the middle of night
Every piece just fits into the puzzle
When I decide to sit back and write

Most of my posts create controversies
Tongues of others then begin to take flight
While these losers are spending time stalking me
I just laugh out loud and continue to write

What I do is first for myself
Thankfully it helped me soar like a kite
No matter what happens I wouldn't give this up
As long as I'm alive, I shall write


  1. As well you should, my dear. Today and always :) Write for yourself and for those of us who love to read what you write :)
