"?" (A Poem)



I don't know why I write the things that I do.

I guess its just something that I'm ment too.

It's nothing for me to write 3 or 4 times a day.

Maybe its easier to choose my words this way.

Sometimes I stutter, stammer or choose the wrong words when I speak.

Maybe I'm affraid that I'll be seen as a bit of a freak.

But carefully chosen words are kinda fun.

Though I am my happiest when I'm done.

When I can't think of anything to write,

I can put away my pencil for the night.
