Who Cares - Poem by Kisha Banks

why do i write
not for your pleasure
only to put my pain out of sight

do i care if u like it
no, not really
i don't give a shit

everybody wants to be a critic
i'm doing this on my level
so my words you don't need to nit-pic

these are just thoughts in my heart
inspired by past experiences
i'm not looking for a counterpart
to tear my words apart

why do i write
to control my anger, pain, and suffering
not to be in anybody's spotlight
