Write

Do I write to kill time?
Do I write to praise art?
Do I write with a keyboard? 
Do I write with my heart?
Do I write to say things
otherwise left unsaid?
Do I write to clear debris
that clutter my head? 
Do I write to feel right?
Do I write to feel wrong?
Is my writing a portrait,
or is it a song? 
Do I write to earn money?
Or do I write to play?
Could I write for both reasons?
Would that be okay?
Do I write to slay dragons
that live in my brain?
If I write long enough,
will I write myself sane? 
Do I write ‘cos I care?
Do I write ‘cos I don’t?
Do I write to write things
that I know others won’t? 
Is writing compulsion?
Is it my OCD?
I don’t know but I’m writing,
and writing is me.
