Why I Write

Why I Write

My writing comes from deep within

From all the places I have been

Feelings I don’t lock inside

Or wish to ever hide

From sadness that I have felt

From band hands I’ve been dealt

To happiness that a smile brings

To what makes my heart truly sing

These experiences of my past

In my memory forever last

I write these down to remember still

My heart they do fill

Give me peace of mind

In these words I do find

  1. Hi Chris, thought you might want to take a look at these two lines. They stopped me when reading, a hiccup – maybe just me or maybe a typo???

    From sadness that I have felt – seemed to me the “that” was not needed? Just me.

    From band hands I’ve been dealt – Did you mean “bad hands”??
    Loved the piece! I love writings about writing. Have a great day, My Friend!

  2. How I feel the deep urge of words in this poem; when the letters and lines well within me, the call is irresistible and writing is the only way to find satisfaction . . . 🙂
