Just for the sake of writing

Just for the sake of writing

Sometimes I sit here writing
Just for the sake of it
I feel the magic of these keys
And it stirs me up a bit
To write just anything at all
Anything that comes along
It could be just some little ditty
Or it might become a song.

I guess a writer’s never made
She is born, it be her gift
I have been caught in untold terror
Yet I have felt it lift
With just a word or two or more
Wrote on a clear white sheet
So often I’ve been on the edge
Then writing made things sweet.

To me, it’s not a competition
It’s saying what you feel
Letting it come flowing out
From a mind that has the will
To see the patterns on the paper
It gives me such delight
I let these words come flowing out
Each morning, noon and night.
