Why Do I Write?

Why Do I Write?

A Poem by Huggy Bear

Why do I write? I write as a way to feel As I live this life I feel my life is not real

Why do I write?
I write as a way to feel
As I live this life
I feel my life is not real

My writing is like a pinch
On my soul's skin as reassurance
I write because it comes natural
Not many things in my life have come natural
I feel free and in peace within my mind and soul

For a brief time the past that haunts me stays put
As life gets more complicated
writing becomes my sanctuary
Writing gives me purpose

To many writing seems like an arduous task
I am grateful that I can write with emotion
I am also thankful that many people enjoy my work
The longer my passion burns so to will my writing

Self-reflecting and what can I say, I feel the same way. Good job.

Nice reflective poem on writing. My favorite is "My writing is like a pinch/On my soul's skin as reassurance." Most of us can truly relate to these sentiments:)

Writing has been my peace for many years. I understand this poem. I have 40 books of life and memories to bring back when I feel alone and sad. A excellent poem.
