this is why i write

i write for peace
i write for weeks
i write to keep the beast from eating my soul to deep
i write so the stress wont get the best of me
i write like its my destiny
i write and become florescent
i write my blessings
i write my life lessons
i write that i might touch heaven
i write as a weapon to fight the oppression i’m kept in
i write and feel handsome
i write in a trance that might be read by my grandson
i write as a passion to express my souls fashion
i write for different creeds
i write for different seasons
i write for my momma who stills prays to Jesus
i write for different reasons
i write on the line
i write for my ex who likes to read in between the lines
i write for all my peoples that’s trapped in hell
i write for the tear drop that sparkled sun rays before it fell
i write so my loved ones will understand me better
i write for the nigga walking in cold Chicago weather
I write for the friend who didn’t understand what i was doing,
he thought i screwed him,
but i didn’t
i’m just a young black man who makes mistakes trying to make a living.

this is why i write
