To Write Is To Live


To write is to live
Life without Poetry is no Life at all-

I will continue
Despite myself
Despite having said what I have to say a thousand times already
Despite and despite and despite-

So a few more little lines from me
Before I am done
Will not cost the Universe that much
If I keep my mood up and my soul alive
Who will it hurt?

I write and write
Thank God for life.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
