In response to the question, why do you write poetry?

Escaping the hurts from yesterday…

Embracing the bleakness of

Today…

Engulfed by the fears of

Tomorrow…

The pen dances

In the whirlwind of words I borrow.

Searching for a meaningful

Existence…

Striving for a meaningless

Excellence…

Satiated by an acceptance so

Thorough…

The pen dances

In the whirlwind of emotions I

Swallow.
