Why I Write? - Poem by Asif Andalib

I write poems for myself and I write for the readers
I write for the masses and I write for the leaders
I write to imprint my thoughts in people's mind
I write to make the bad guys helpful and kind
I write to light up our path to Great God
I write for everyone home and abroad
I write to preserve values new and old
I write to make my ink precious like gold
I write for peace and I write for progress
I write to make the world a better place
All major issues I want to address
I write to see smile on God's face

    Poets are born not made
    you write because you breathe
    you write because your heart beats
    you write because you have a soul
    in poems your spirit lives (Report) Reply
