why


I write to know that I’m alive
I run to know that I can walk
I scream to know that I can breathe

If I only I could slow down
Peace would follow
For sure, for sure

I sing to remember that I believe
I pray to see the face of the Divine
I dig with fists closed
I fight with eyes blinded

I fall
on
my
knees

And I write
to know that . . .

I like this, sort of an mantra or words to think it over when things get unbearable

Thanks, Lissa!

Your site, Just Writing Words, is quite lovely. I'm glad you dropped by and that, as a result, I've been introduced to a writer of poetic verse.

Blessings on your writing,
Merrie
