Shaman - Horse

Poem - Write Each Day

The poem “Write Each Day” is about the cathartic activity of writing.


Write Each Day

Write each day to stay alive
this is my task with the pen
to etch mere words upon the page
an exclamation against the dread

lest the slope becomes a cliff
no longer there to ground a soul
the holding damned to finally fail
without foundations that must prevail

greet the sun to damn the night
this was the way of ancient man
a superstition in hindsight
the same is said of my task

to write each day to stay alive
a religion I’ll not deny
with the clergy of the poem
the congregation of only one.
