Why Does She Write? - Poem by Jessie Jett

Why does she write?
Does she write to pass the time?
Why does she write?
Does she relieve a tangled mind?

Why does she write?
Is it simply her ways?
Does she become free,
A harmless animal from a cage?

Does she write to settle her tears?
Does she write to overcome fears?
Does she write to capture her words?
Does she write so she is heard?

Does she write about happy endings?
Does she write to create mendings?
Why does she write?
Does she write to keep living?

Simply she writes, to make amends.
Simply she writes, to relinquish the broken.
Simply she writes, to ponder her thoughts.
Simply she writes, to catch what she soughts.

She writes to lose all the forgotten.
Render the past soon made rotten.
She writes for the beautiful words sway.
She writes in rememberance of the days.

Why does she write?
Is it simply her ways?
Does she become free,
A harmless animal from a cage.

She knows this ink stains the page.
More than so can be filled with rage.
Why does she write?
Simply, to take away the pain.

Not only so, a love that flows.
She opens her heart, so you truley know.
She writes to create a deeper meaning.
She writes, for her words create scenery.

In the end,
She makes a mark.
So why does she write?
To portray her heart.
