What is the point of writing if it does not
Vex the reader, if it is not with discomfort fraught?
If words are in agreeability soaked
If unpleasant subjects are cloaked
In palatable phrases or idioms always
If dark emotions are merely grazed
At surface, without attempt at deeper dive
Such writing does not appear alive..
If the writer cannot pour his heart
If external pressure makes him modify his art
If authenticity needs to be sacrificed
So a factious goal can be satisficed
What purpose does a book like that serve
The reader and the writer do not get what they deserve
Sanitized, watered-down, insipid writing
Is pointless- words incapable of igniting
Passion in the hearts of readers are misspent
Such writing does not true writing represent..
Write with a fury, write without censorship
With a voice so fierce that it can rip
Apart emotions, leave the reader in anguish and awe
Write to reveal outrage, anger, injustice, pain…raw
Let the emotions wrapped in words eventually reveal
The path to redemption, the way forward to heal..
