Poems

Of Love and Writing

We write to break hearts of those who break ours

We write to build and tear lives apart

We write to give and take refuge

We write to live and make the dead come alive.

We write to bring sunshine and rain and all sorts of pain

We write to speak what our lips can’t

We write to see what our eyes have been blinded to see

We write to learn and unlearn

We write for the past and the future

We write for the here and now

We write for the black and white and all the colors that there are

We write for the girls and boys and everyone in between

We write from experience,

from stories we heard;

from books we’ve read;

and from the lives we lived.

With love,

For love,

and to love,

we write.
