Iwrite -
for the simple reason
I love -
for the noble reason
I will not -
for the painful reason

I must -
for the beautiful reason
I hope -
for the obvious reason
I know -
and it is for this reason
I end.

This poem is a testament of how I... how WE, often think of something but can't really express it. this poem struck me because, in a way, it relates this manner of thinking of ours; and vague as it may seem, we - the readers somehow manage to understand

there are certain times when words elude our thoughts, but we still manage to convey what we mean... this poem is a testimony to that human capability

i guess it speaks about life in general. that people arent really the people the portray to be. that nothing seems real. science may prove man is real but thoughts can practically change a mans perception of everything. words certainly are not enough in expressing ones feelings. it is evident in the poem that man may be the smartest living creature but undeniably dumb in such a way that he cannot even show what he feels in a manner which everone understands. true, it is simple. everthing is simple. but nothing is simple when you cant express how simple it is.

This poem reminds me of... well... me! Being the silent-type, I am known for not being able to express feelings openly. It is true that I get what was being said in the poem. I just hope that people were more like the readers who readily understand this poem.

it's amazing how the words sounded obvious but it is rarely the case for people to think that way. Maybe because the words when used together in this arrangement sounds and means vague yet full of meaning.

I think its a very nice poem...I believe it expresses clearly the feelings of a writer and his motivations to write. The author is very empathic and observant.

in the words of archibald macleish, a poem should be: "palpable and mute as a globed fruit, silent as the sleeve-worn stone of casement ledges where the moss has grown and wordless as a flight of birds". this poem fulfills every single one of these and more. kudos to the author!:D
