We, As Writers

By Tony DeLorger © 2013

Ill-conceived perhaps,

but the rationale for my purpose,

I believe, is simply to write,

as is my path of expression,

my definitive ceaseless statement,

of who I am.

Who in life can know this

about themselves,

have a heart at rest from this meaning,

that beyond all love and relationships,

there is one single purpose,

to know and to share thoughts,

expressed in written language.

I am indeed grateful, for this knowing,

and whatever happens to me in life,

whether wealth or poverty,

in love or despair, sanity or insanity,

I will be writing,

from my singular perspective,

to find common ground

with my humanity,

and enliven language,

with my own creativity and heart.

What audience I find is uncertain,

and in the end irrelevant,

as the purpose of writing is achieved by its doing,

not the adulation of an appreciative readership,

nor the money gained

from the commercialism of writing,

so, as long as I adhere to my own values

and the expectations I have of my ability and craft,

then I shall die a happy and fulfilled man.

Writing is a profession, a hobby, an art, a craft, a gift and above all a love.

      How true my friend, for to not be able to write would be a death sentence. I need to bleed as Ernest coined so well and he sure bled in every sense of the word. We need to express ourselves, release our stress, pull from the shadows our feelings, no matter how driven. For not to write would cause insanity, no matter the style rhyme or prose, we must let loose, set them free, breaking the chains that bind them to our Muse. Well expressed my poet.
