why do i write these poems

why do i write these poems?

they make no money

what do i care what the rest of the world thinks if im dead?

why do i care what this world is like when im gone?

its innate

its human

something inside me is calling me and telling me that it matters

i don't know why

i don't know what it is

it's just who i am

it's who i am as a person that drives me and tells me

because i was given that spark

i don't know how long ago i was given that spark

but i was given that spark

and sometimes i'm like, let's find something poetic

but i don't know if you can make poetry

i think it just comes

sometimes it comes, sometimes it doesn't, and it varies

it's a beautiful day today, very balmy

it kind of reminds me of humanity

that's when we're at our best

that's the kind of world id like to see

a balmy world

where things are even and balanced, at equilibrium

a balmy world of equilibrium

a balmy world of peace

a balmy world of sunshine

a balmy world of love.
