#NationalPoetryDay – What drives me to write? A poem

Robbie's inspiration

IMG_9054

What drives me to write?

To share my innermost thoughts

The answer is clear

It’s my personal attempt

To make some sense of this world.

What drives me to write?

Exposing personal ideas

To deaf ears, blind eyes

In this large, uncaring world

I believe I reach a few.

What drives me to write?

To cast my words like pebbles

Into the water

To join the endless ripples

That may swell into huge waves.

What drives me to write?

A hope to instigate change

To do some small good

In a world of endless pain

Doing nothing destroys hope.
