Write

By Kamesha Gordon

Write… Because you need to
Write… Because it’s what you do

Write… Because it needs to be written
Write… Because words have you smitten

Write… Because paper needs pen
Write… Because stories must begin

Write… Because your thoughts have value
Write… Because it is always time to

Write… Because it memorializes life
Write… Because Expression is Thought’s wife

Write… Because it is morning, noon, or night
Write… Because shadows need your light

Write… Because today’s ideation will be gone tomorrow
Write… Because there is a target that needs your arrow

Write… Because it leaves your foot prints on a page
Write… Because it gives your voice center stage

Write… Because it is your gift, and you refuse to waste it
Write… Because not only can you see it, you can taste it

Write.
