Why I Write!

Why I Write

I write to keep thoughts

From taking the lead

And I write so I don’t forget

Some insignificant detail

Or to compare the insane thoughts

Of my youth with those just written.

And I write to keep brain

Synapses sending their little

Messages to a body that

Doesn’t respond so well anymore.

But most of all I write to

Keep my friends and family

And myself

In the loop of life.

  1. Yes... you summed up my thoughts too! Only you did it so much better than I've ever thought of doing. Good poem Milan. Very good.
