Why I Write

Echo Seeker

I write for what I hope to see,

A reflection staring back at me.


An answer to my lifelong query,

And though I am already weary,


Fingers worn down to the bone,

I have but one dream that I own.


I hope to one day write a spark,

That will shatter the murky dark,


Surrounding who I am to me,

My reflection staring back at me.


And if the answer is in my pen,

I guess that I will know it when,


Its stokes create a crystal mirror,

Into which my soul can peer.

  • Comment from author about the poem: The first two lines are something I've had in my head for several years now. I have tried to write poems for them before, but they never turned out right. I think I finally found it this time.

    a good enough reason to keep writing my friend... I hope you feel better now you have incorporated those two lines you stored inside for such a long time into a delightful little poem... Neville
