I Write

I write not because I have words at my fingertips
I write not because I know it all
I write not because my life is perfect
I write not because I’ve seen it all
I write not because I’m sagacious.
I write not because life has been so faithful
And not because it’s a bed of roses.

Some say poetry is a mad man’s ranting
A mad man’s cry and plea
but I write not because I’m mad.
Though I want to enthrall you,
I write not because I want your eulogies and praise.
Even if I want my voice to be heard,
I write not to beg you.

I write not because I have it all
I write not because my brain is an encyclopedia
I write not because I don’t know the way
I write not because I have nothing else to do.
Though I want to inspire,
Don’t get me wrong.
Though I cry,
Don’t ignore me
but don’t make me a fool either.
Thought I rant,
In my rantings you find sense.
Receive my gifts but don’t misuse it
Be glad but don’t worship.
My words are mine
And yours if you will…
