Why I don’t Write

Do I write for fun?
Or when the power of words hit me?
Do I write to process, to understand
The beauty of things that surround?

Would I write if energy was freely given,
Flowing to me in a continuous
And purifying rain of words?

If the bones in my hand didn’t ache
As I typed
And my heavy head wasn’t throbbing
From buried pain?

If my day wasn’t congested with
Chores and human frailties
Could I produce
A brilliant new world?

Or would I still sit here, wilting
Creativity dripping down the
Sides of my face
Not knowing how to come back from all this madness?

  1. Truer words were never spoken! Miss your presence on TWP. I have not been writing as I was judging. What an overwhelming but creative task. Glad the winners are announced. What did you think? Have to get back to my blog….

    1. I wish I had more time to devote to TWP, but the start of school and other personal obligations have kept me overly occupied. I’m hoping to make a comeback soon enough.
