The Reason I Write

The words I write

I write of my creator

I write of my blessings

I write of my failures

I write of my life.

 

What it all comes down to

Is as simple as drawing a line

I write because it’s healthy.

I write about my fears

I write about my worries.

 

I make it into a prayer-

Similar to David

In times of sadness or frustration

Or times of praise or thanksgiving

 

I sit down and pray

Pray for the events of each day

I sit and write so He has my full attention

When I choose to not write

That’s when I get distracted

 

My mind starts to worry

Rather than inscribing the words

Rather than focusing my mind on God.

 

I write about my blessings

My loved ones and pets

The steps I take

The people I meet

The breath I breathe

 

I write about my worries

Of this everyday life

Where time is taken for granted

And feelings are damaged

 

I write to my God

Whether in my head or on paper

I write because I know

I know that I’m not strong enough

To go through life alone.
