Why I Write|How to Write a Poem

It began as an expression

I noticed some impression

 

I’m not aware how it did

But I remember, how was it

 

I realized I can give rhythm and write

The feelings came out which I usually hide

 

I cared less what they would think

And there it was within a wink

 

I understood poetry was not only passion

It was my way of aggression and regresion

 

My anger and gloom no longer aimless

And my guilt eased with self confess

 

Times changed and I wrote more

Each time, a different topic to score

 

Soon, the realization dawned

Something unique had been fawned

 

It was hidden but calling was loud

No matter who said what, I felt proud

 

My shyness gave way to pen

It was as if, I was the old as well as the new gen

 

Today, I write maybe to impress

But those too are emotions I could not supress

 

My mates helped me when no one could

I stand for myself whenever I should

 

Now it is a journey of five years

My pen and papers holds countless laughter and tears

Maybe, I’m still not good to all the ears

But heart knows how it feels when a poem sears

 

I know not exactly “why” I write

But when readers can associate to their life maybe wrong maybe right

I feel their is more to this journey than rules to abide
