Why do you write?

Why do you write…

Are you inspired by those whom you genuinely love

Or perhaps you get your inspiration

From the heavenly realms up above

 

Why do you write…

Are you inspired by the flight of an ornery bumblebee

Or perhaps you get your inspiration

From the depths of the glimmering sapphire sea

 

Why do you write…

Are you inspired by intense suffering and pain

Or perhaps you get your inspiration

From the gentle lull of a passing rain

 

Why do you write…

Are you inspired by those with heartwarming smiles

Or perhaps you get your inspiration

From watching your daughter walk down the aisle

 

Why do you write…

Are you inspired by moments of fiery passion

Or perhaps you get your inspiration

From the newest trends and in-style fashions

 

Why do you write…

Are you inspired by a vividly colorful rainbow

Or perhaps you get your inspiration

From the swaying of the grass in a lush green meadow

 

Why do you write…

Are you inspired by those terrible pangs of grief

Or perhaps you get your inspiration

From your own thoughtful and personal beliefs

 

Why do you write…

Are you inspired by those you once knew

Or perhaps you get your inspiration

From incredible dreams which have finally come true

 

Whatever your reason for writing

Each one of you has so much to give

So never stop creating your magic

It’s the only way for a writer to live
