Why Do I Write?
By Apolinario Villalobos
I want to please myself, as well as, others, too;
The pent up emotions and thoughts I must let go –
So overpowering, so overwhelming, my person they engulf –
I can’t be just like a balloon that anytime can helplessly burst.
In letting go of my thoughts, I feel relieved, refreshed;
The comfort of lightness gives me such ecstatic buoyancy –
A fulfillment that one gets from a drop of water for his thirst
Or a speck of shade for his solace from the sun’s searing heat.
It is God’s will for me to write, as singing is for singers;
His plan is for everyone to have a distinctive role to play –
In a serene world, where dwells a contented bunch of humanity
As each one is foiled to fit a space to ensure a lasting harmony.
For me personally, I started writing because people’ve always told me my stories are good, but nowadays, writing is my way of living lives outside of my own and playing god (don’t mean to offend you :))))
