searching for reasons why i write

i hurt i searched ,i wonder why,
there is no love in my life,
reason for it all,
i stand tall still i fall,
illusion of a migrating call,

like geese flying south for the winter,
like butterflies caught up in a hurricane,
like a bat in a blizzard,
searching for reasons why i write

a poet and his rhymes,
heart soul and mind,
must flow as one ,
like the colors of life
why do i write
i must feel ,i am real,
i must agree,to disagree,
i must hurt .to feel joy,
i am somebody,
who knows somebody,
could that somebody be you,

i am a open book, i am the words and hooks,
i am the person who reads them,
pens them live them,shares them
i am the person who connects,
i am the person who's not correct,
i am the one who is always corrected,

in heart soul and mind,
thu lifes trouble times
from words that rhyme
so why do you ask what you should already know,
i write not for fortune fame or gold,
i write just to free the inner creative soul,
i write so that my spirit may soar,
i write for the same reason GOD made,
man,woman boy and ,
i write to breathe the essence of life,
i write just to see the colors shine so bright,
i write for wrong that may be right,
i write to give the blind sight,
i write to feel so alive i am so alive when i write,

poetry in motion if you get the notion,
let me be the one who whips up a portion,
of why you read what i write,
something that you like,

I have read a few of you poems and enjoy them but I must say I enjoyed the "Searching for Reasons That I Write" in your biography the most....mlea

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
