Why - Poem by Marvin Leber

As i sit here
I am writing,
but what am i actually writing.
I'm writing that i'm writing.
Which makes sense.
Tree.
And if i continue to read this,
I dont even know anymore what i'm reading.
I'm reading that
i'm reading this piece of shit.
Thats what i'm writing.
Poetry slam

    Some people believe that if we slam often enough into the poetry tree, we will “be.”
    Keep writing, just like breathing and walking and eating and drinking... in whatever language, often enough and it will turn into what it is meant to be.

    I found the piece fun to read. It reminded me of some of my frustrating moments when I lose concentration during my writings. A very relatable piece written with a tinge of humour. Funny though, but a lovely creation. Thanks for sharing Marvin, take it easy and do remain enriched. (Report)Reply
