Why I Write

Why! I write because it helps to release some of my feelings, 
It's a way of me attending to my heart which is healing.
I write because it comes naturally especially when I'm stressed, 
I think its at that time i write at my best. 

I write to feel free and to be strong so i can fight , 
to find my place in this world and overcome lonely nights.
I write because i want to prevent this pain, 
to help my mind from going insane. 
Why i write, because of you. 
Yes you! 
Your looking at your self because you don't have a clue. 
Right now i can tell your mind is way pass the clouds and lost in the blue.
 
Why i write, because i want you to see things in my life, 
how its hurt when i got stabbed by a knife. 
Why i write, not because i want you to only read and look out for rhymes,
because reading and understanding is important at times. 
Why i write, to help tell about mine and other love tales, 
to show you how easy a strong relationship fails.

Why i write, not to be in this spot light, 
but its because i am RYO the Poem "Black Knight". 
So i really careless what people might think.
I am the poet putting words don't with the ink. 
I am out of your league also your range. 
I am not surprised cause this isn't strange. 
Don't ask this question again ' Why i Write'.

RYO"""
