Write, ignite

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..
