The Writing Life

The writing has to lift
Beyond one's mood.

Ok you are sad
Depressed, tired, heavy
Heartbroken, blue, tormented
Late, stretched, down

Still you have to write
As joy and pain alternate
As peace and chaos
Decorate existence
And the old and new
Forebode better times

Writing is like breathing
It has to stay on and persevere
Amid life's seasons
