Story of a Poet: #40. Why did I write?

¶ Quiet won’t mean I’m gone.
¶ Silence won’t mean I’m dead.

What was with the night?
And why did I write?

Did I write because I had to?
Or did I write because I loved to?

Did I write to earn a fame?
Or did I write to lounge a name?

Did I write because I wanted to express?
Or did I write because I wanted to impress?

Did I write because it was my passion?
Or did I write because of appreciation?

Did I write because I had writing skills?
Or did I write because loneliness kills?

Did I write because people wanted?
Or did I write because I was discarded

Did I write because I wanted people around?
Or did I write because solidarity was my bound?

Did I write to forget about my pains?
Or did I write to drag it off through ink of pens?

Did I write because of the suffering humanity?
Or did I write to leave it all to insanity?

Did I write because I had no other hope?
Or did I write to maintain my  life’s slope?

Did I write to convince people?
Or did I write to win a push_and_pull?

Did I write because of the rummaging thoughts?
Or did I write because of the complexity of naughts?

Did I write to teach Islam?
Or did I write to boost my Imaan(faith)?

Did I write because ★I’m Here; Right Here★?
Or did I write because ★I’m There; Nowhere★?

Streaks are made to be broken; and so the question goes unanswered. Taking the job and being a responsible blogger is what I fancy the most because I had always believed in the fact that what one writes has to benefit, either the reader, or the writer’s self.

        1. Good to see you back again.
          Hopefully I’ll be starting full-fledged at end of November because of an entrance exam.
          But, you shall start any sooner.
          Keep shining.

  2. After reading this, I have got irresistible urge to share my poem that i wrote for magazine. i hope you will like it.

    To fetch out a new me
    what I am truly
    my ‘inner me’ asks me
    Why I write?

    To water the fire within
    To rejuvenate the slept rhythm
    the plain paper asks me
    Why I write?

    To write a patriot for our land
    To write a lullaby for a infant
    needs of world ask me
    Why I write?

    When I see a crying child
    sing this song, he smiled
    that’s the answer of my question-
    Why I write?
