So what motivates me to write things down?
Well, the things in this world that are all around
Feelings, stories, music, and love
You could write about any of the above!
When the hours fly out of the clock
And I’m stuck in a deep writer’s block
I read Rimbaud and Rilke all through the night
They usually give me inspiration to write
Sometimes poetry is the only way we can feel
We write things down just to make sure we’re real
Some stories are true and some are not
When you think about it, words are all we’ve got
Poetry is sadly a dying art
I don’t know where to start
People just want something that will entertain
And with poetry they have to use their brain
And that’s motivation enough for me
