Rap: Why I write contest entry


by the13thpoet

Write a Rap about why you write Contest Winner 
The pen glows and shakes
as it sits on the desk
Time to get some
things off my chest

Ideas are flying
inside my brain
Some funny, some serious
all strange and deranged

My brain goes to work
as I clutch the pen tight
Who know what words
this pen will write?

Since thirteen I wielded
this pen like a sword
And I slay the competition
whenever I'm bored

These words are like daggers
they cut like a knife
Telling true stories
of love, pain and strife

Should I tell a story
of a world so cold?
Or write words of hope and love?
to help cleanse my soul

These words fill my heart
and flow through my veins
I gotta let them flow out
before they drive me insane

I let my pen speak
the words I don't say
Why do I write?
It's in my DNA
