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 a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
