Why

Why?

Why do I sit and write this stuff?
Pure love, my friends, pure love
I’ve always had a love for words
Now a gift from up above
Has shown itself to be my lot
What a lucky guy am I
I’m always going to write my stuff
Until the day I die.

Why do I sit and write I ask
But the answers always there
Cause when I’m writing down my words
I have me nary a care
The words just flow, it’s wonderful
This feeling that I get
There’s something that I want to say
But I ain’t said it yet.

Why do I sit and write, you ask
It’s a thing that I must do
I’ve done it now since just a child
And there’s always something new
To write about, I never lack
A thing or two to say
And anyway I am retired
And it helps me pass my day.

    "And anyway I am retired And it helps me pass my day" A very good way to spend your retirement to keep your mind inspired. And you keep others inspired too...

    I really felt at ease perusing your poem Peter. This is something that I can truly relate to though I may have a different reason why I write.

    I think you could start a contest on why we write poetry. I love the freedom that comes across from this poem. The ease of life when writing. Thank you for this as I feel I am part of a community of like minded people.

    Thank you Sara, it is people like yourself who make me feel good about what I do. yes two more days and the beautiful Spring is upon us. We don't get much of a fall over here, but I loved the Autumn when I was a kid in London....Peter
