I Write

I write to remember,

I write to plan,

I write to think,

I write; therefore, I am.

I write to make meaning,

I write to be understood,

I write to be heard,

I write to persuade.

I write to explain,

I write to feel,

I write fantasy,

I write real.

I write to make music –

The words are my notes,

I write for entertainment,

To amuse myself!

I write to spill onto pages

Any pain, any sorrow,

I write my thoughts

For a better tomorrow.

I write for my students,

I write for my friends

I write for my family:

Wedding vows and birthday wishes.

I write to be published,

Immortality, perhaps:

I write to feel deeply,

I write; therefore, I am.

  1. Lynne, I’m enjoying your poetry. I, too, like to write poetry. My favorite part of your list poem: I write to spill onto the pages, any pain, any sorrow, I write my thoughts for a better tomorrow. I purchased your Book, Poetry Mentor Text, and it should arrive today. I can’t wait!
