Don't Tell Me

People ask me time and time again why I don’t write.

But just because I’m smart, can put words together well, & can spell

Does not imply that I like to write.

Yes, I can do it.

I do write,

Just not as often as people would like me to

Or in the way they want me to.

The other problem I have with writing is,

Since it is a form of media,

It is expected to be shared,

Shared at one point or another.

I have gone through my entire life

Up till this point

Thinking that some people are supposed to be heard,

Others are not.

I am one of the ones who was meant not to be heard.

There are many reasons that this could be,

Which one it is I don’t have the slightest clue.

The purpose of all this is to say,

I do write,

Sometimes I even enjoy it

Especially as a way to clear my head.

I do write, but not for you.
