And I Write To Think (rev)

write to think

I write
to exorcise
the demons
of the night 

I write
for family and friends
(and many times
to make amends)

I write
for times I couldn’t pen
a line and for when
I didn’t even try

I write
so my hands are occupied 
they’d choke
me if denied

I write
to thank my family
for completely
loving me

I write
because I have
the choice of words
I didn’t voice today

I write
for emotional release
no greater peace
than artistic catharsis

…and I write to think
(therefore I am)!
