Keep this Writer

Keep this pencil
and pad of paper
next to me
inside of me
and let me write
I know it doesn’t
always make sense
Maybe they aren’t
the perfect words
or most beautiful subjects
in the world
expressed by me
but they are mine
and I am theirs
We exist together
on the path I walk
leading me to peace
finding ways
to cope with life
and strife
To remember good
always wins
makes me happy
far within
shining out
through my writs
trying to reach
whoever needs
Smile awhile
I write for you
as much as for me
