Writing poetry is a way to stay alive

After bein murdered day in and day out

Working, loving, and fighting are all just ways we die each day

Poetry is like a tourniqite to stop bleeding

Poetry allows a more nobel pursuit than the usual routes of spicing up life

Better than drinking,smoking, sex, and gabling

More nourishing than meaningless love

More important to the poet than to anyone that reads their work

After they are dead and gone

Not missing the drugs, war, or politics

Only missing their work

And only regretting they didn't make more.
