It’s National Poetry Day, here in the UK. I thought I’d mark it with a short piece about why I write.
Thanks, as always, for reading and it’s always very much appreciated when you choose to share.
Happy National Poetry Day to you 😊.
Why I Write…
I write because I like words,
the way they dance into your heart.
I write because I’m shy,
It’s how I reach out and touch.
I write because I’ve been ill,
it’s therapy to help me stay well.
I write because I’m lonely,
but people can be too much.
I write because I can,
a privilege others are denied.
I write because there’s talent,
which isn’t easy for me to say.
I write because I love it,
brings happiness that’s hard to find.
I write because you read it,
appreciated more than you know.
