What Is Writing?

24 Apr


Writing is different from everything other

Qualities possessed by means of no other
To write is to set down the whims of your soul
To proudly lay bare every wish aim and goal
Words are at once dynamic and static
A series of symbols; words starkly dramatic
No more than letters just signs on a page
But none can express more of anger or rage
To write is to set down words for forever
They will never forget; though the bonds of life sever
In writing you use what is private and sacred
What you never would say; be it love be it hatred
All of our wisdom and all that we know
Is passed on by people who wrote long ago
And all between us and the beasts of the field
Is the letters we have and the knowledge they wield
It is this which I say; and I cannot stress more
This is all that we; it is all we strive for
To write is to share, is to teach, to be moved
And I hope in this piece my point I have proved
