Writing Is My Life - Poem by Shalom Freedman

When I am so tired as I am now
Writing is desperation
And putting down lines
A straining effort
But I must write tonight
I must write
Because writing is my life
However poor it is
I force myself on against
The endless nothing
Eternal silence will one day bring
