On Writing
by Jason Tomlinson

You never know what will happen when you start writing
the endless possibilities are fantastic and exciting
between beginning and end there is so much to be gained
so much to be understood and so much to be explained
but by far my favorite above all that I know
is the wonder in where your writing can go
and where it can take you I must say it is worth
mentioning it can take you to the ends of the earth
and beyond – it’s true – your words can save
your writing is your memory beyond the grave
you will live on after you’re dead
your writing will go on to say what you said
you just never know what can happen when you do
your writing is your voice your writing is you
