Why We Write

Standard

The reasons why you love writing

Writing expresses emotion

Writing expresses experiences

Releases pent up emotions

Describes things I cannot say

Tells a story

Transports writer and reader to new adventures

One writes to express the soul

To invent new worlds

To solve one’s problems

And because a writer loves to write

I am invisible like a ghost

You are the sun. The moon. The stars.

As close as you are you might as well be Mars.

Poem: Screens

Standard

Glass screens are everywhere.

On phones, televisions, laptops, desktops.

People stare at glass screens all day and well into the night.

Walking, driving, sitting, looking at screens.

Little screens, big screens, medium screens.

Wall-E people we are becoming.

Only seeing the screens in front of us.

No longer seeing the world outside the screen.

Screens everywhere.

Screens are becoming more important that what is directly

in front of someone.
