The poem says it all.

Write for yourself

It is the venting process

Get it out

Never let it stay.

Write for yourself

When the need is calling to you

Create the actors and the stage

For your play.


Write for the art

That you are finding, there, within you.

Never should you write

For those who read.

They are there

As an added inspiration

But they should never be the ones

Who plant the seed.


What you write

Is not only for the now

It may be destined

For another point in time.

Like a bell

That few enjoy today

May ring triumphant

In a future, so sublime.

So true and perfectly written. Writing can be so therapeutic ....getting off that which weighs heavy on our hearts and minds. Writing can be so fulfilling...feeding the need to share life lessons and experiences. We write for us, but it's wonderful when that writing is appreciated by someone else. Wonderful poem JE
Write On!

Great idea. It is the difference between copy-writing and creating art, regardless of the quality of the writing.
