Why Do I Write

Why do you,
A photographer,
Take pictures?

Why do you,
A runner,
Run?

Why do you,
A gardener,
Garden?

Why do you,
A singer,
Sing?

Why do you,
A talker,
Talk?

Why do you,
A thinker,
Think?

Why do you do,
What you do?

Why do I write,
What I write?

A Photographer,
Takes photos,
Because they enjoy it

A Runner,
Runs,
Because the sport is their’s

A Gardener,
Gardens,
Because that’s what they chose

A Singer,
Sings,
Because they are compelled to express thoughts

A Talker,
Talks,
Because their voice screams to be let out

A Thinker,
Thinks,
Because that is what they do

I Write,
What I write,
Because I enjoy it

Because the sport is mine
Because that’s what I chose

Because I am compelled to express my thoughts
Because my voice screams to be let out

Because,
It is
What I
DO
