So Is Poetry

starfrangledbanner

I just read a quote that floored me

I have never understood something so clearly

Why do I write?

I write because there is no other way

I have so many things to say

And no one to say them to

My feelings have nowhere else to go.

I do not want to reveal my affection

For fear of losing a friend

I do not want to burden another with sadness

Because they are having a great day

Or they have problems of their own

I do not want to tell my family how I feel

Because I want to stay strong for them

It is never the right time to talk

But it is always the right time to write.

Nothing else can happen

So is poetry.
