Why I Write

Fingers shaking,
Lips quivering,
Pulse racing,
Feet tapping,
Thoughts pounding: begging to be set free.
But I don’t know how.

How do I let such thoughts, such ideas, that I have stuck in my head out?

Fingers calm.
Lips still
Pulse slowed
Feet planted
Thoughts set free
Pen to paper,
My thoughts, my ideas run wild.
This is why I write
