Don't do it because I need to Don't do it because I suppose to I do it because I want to Writing is a passion; No type of skill; No type of fashion Its a style; A style to speak truth A reality check for some of our youth It drives us kind of crazy if you don't know what to say instantly So we think about it and write like our ancestors did to make it out that place of hell Writing how we feel; telling our tale Just writing for the joy of it because anything is everything really Don't have to be long, short, or even average Just write as much as you want and let the world have it
