Grab a cup of tea or coffee (oh what the heck, get a danish too!) and sit a spell. You might want to grab your notebook and pen because you never know when you will be inspired to write down a quote, or jot down a poem of your own. Words are like that, they take you on a journey and the next thing you know you are breathing life into your own magical world of words.

We write because we must

We write because we must
Because if we don't, our minds will rust;
We write to tell our stories,
We write to heal our bodies,
Because all those hurts that weigh on us
Lead to aches and flesh-eating pus;
We write to free our soul
To make it fly, to keep it whole;
We write of sorrow, we write of death,
We write of survival, of catching our breath,
We write of life, we write of nature,
We write of the beauty from our Creator,
We write to think, we write to sing,
We write a heritage to our offspring.
We write because we must
Because if we don't, we will turn to dust.
I had some time to kill... or rather, some words that still needed out. I knew when I read OctPoWriMo's Day 2 prompt this morning that, even though the poem written to my muse yesterday could fit the prompt, there was much more I needed to say about this. 


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
