Words, Just Words

by Joanne Marie Firth

Why Do I Keep It?

I wonder at times

Why I write things down

Like I do

Here

On this blog

******

It is just a speck

A tiny fleck

A microscopic cell

In a much larger

World

Of other peoples’

Words

*****

Why do I keep it?

I wonder that

Often

What is the point?

Of writing things down

Here

*****

My answer

Is always the same

I keep it

Because

I love it

And I know that

It has the potential

To reach others

To reach someone

To reach that one person

Who may understand

Why I do

Why I keep it

Why I love it

Why I let your eyes see it

*****

Why do you keep yours?
