To Live Is To Write

To live is to write,

And to write is to relive what marks your life,

And what mark our lives– often times– are what kill us inside, and so,

To live is to write,

And to die inside,

Again and again.

 

To live is to write,

And to write is to unearth the dead in your memories,

And what made you bury them in your thoughts, and so,

To live is to write,

And to exhume what’s buried,

Again and again.

 

To live is to write,

And to write is to show what you desire to hide,

And why you’d wound yourself ’til the truth bleeds out, and so,

To live is to write,

And to bleed through words,

Again and again.

 

To live is to write,

And to write is to live beyond the skies and seas,

And to weave through thoughts and words, and so,

To live is to write,

And to wander the realms across what’s real and what’s not,

Again and again.

 

To live is to write,

And to write is to speak of truths through lies,

And why the unwritten must be read, and so,

To live is to write,

And to speak through the unheard,

Again and again.

 

To live is to write,

And to write is to shape your thoughts into words,

And why one fails to do so in one work alone, and so,

To live is to write,

And to write– is to write,

Again and again.
