I write...

I write this for you
I write for Love
I write for the passion in Art
I write for the many times I have slipped and fallen
I write for the courage to be ‘myself ' through it all
I write for knowing that I like someone out there…while they may not like me as much…at all
I write for despair when tasks get too difficult for me to accomplish
I write for my frail little weak me at this time
I write for the strong woman that dwells in my soul
I write for my short stubby feet… that carry a stubborn me to wherever I want to even when it’s not safe!
I write for gossips…they've work to do
I write for you
I write for your hate and rage over the fact that am not like you in many ways
I write for health
I write for life
I write for death
I write for fate
I write for gay, queer, dyke, the trans personas
I write for ALL, not ‘some’
I write for thematic ideas that make me unique in my own special way
I write for diversity
I write for non-discrimination,
I write for the protection of your basic but fundamental rights
I write for religious fanatics…who think they have the right to condemn and preach hatred among an innocent people
I write for the minority, the widowed, the orphans, the less fortunate, the displaced ,them all…
I write for your eyes, that twinkle with excitement and sadness and remorse at the sight of this poem
I write for the immigrants
I write for rapists…who destroy but continue to walk free
I write for the murderers…whose end is always traumatic.
I write for the dictators…who'll never give a voice to the oppressed
I write for the activists of the world…who go through hell to achieve justice and fairness for all
I write for those that have departed from the world while on official duty
I write for the drug addicts…they need our understanding and love
I write for the commercial sex workers, whose plight no one cares to find out
I write for the careless driver, who's hurrying up to kill his passengers without mercy
I write for the lawyer, the police officer, who takes bribes to protect criminals
I write for the prisoner…whose world only rotates around their dim lit caged little rooms
I write for single mothers especially my mother, who though gone forever lives inside of me
I write for the immigrants
I write for the hustlers, who have to make a living despite the challenges of this life
I write for those that have lost hope in everything…those that are trying to kill their beautiful selves
I write for the politicians, who put their greed before their navels and care less about improving their regions
I write for us, the human race, the best of the world!
