Why I Write?

Updated on July 7, 2012

Why I Write...?

I write seeking redemption,

For the life I lived?

I write for repentance,

For all in life I did.

I write for the sunshine,

I write for the dark,

I write for the little children,

I write for the homeless in the park,

I write for in-justice,

I write for justice, just as well,

I write for the Angels in heaven,

I write for the Angels in hell,

I write for that someone,

Who captivates my heart,

I write in this world of pain,

To maybe send a spark,

(A spark of wisdom,

That will ripple through eternity.)

When I go on that journey?

Through the void of time and space,

These words I have collected,

Might finally find a place.

These words of my written passion,

These words of my heart,

Will leave me when I take that walk,

That journey through the dark.

      Matthew, this is a really great expression of the need to make an impact while we are here and to leave mark that we have been here. Voted up and awesome. Great job!
