* dubai.............. AM I A WRITER? ................. I AM ASKING MYSELF TO ASK YOU...............................AM I A WRITER?


Are you a writer?
(Are you asking me?)
I am asking you
Are you a writer?

I am not a writer
I am not the one you think of
Though my thoughts are put down
into words
It doesn't make me a writer
Though I can think of the way
how the writer thinks
I am not a writer

I have paragraphs but loose
I have ideas but ambiguous
I have syntax, clusters, sentences
if not all run-off; obscure and vague

I am, therefore, not a writer

though I can write literally the way
how the writer writes
with wads of paper, pointed pens
clattering keypads

I am still not a writer
even to say that I am not yet a writer
nor a promising writing
nor to be created
and even if my name will park
in the guild of fame
I would proclaim selfishly
I am not a writer

why am I writing?

I write simply to vomit my ruining mind
my wild thoughts, my weird ideas
my shattered dreams, my burren memories
and gather into a voluminous pages of words
that could
move reader's heart
and make them think

what do you think?

Am I NOW a writer?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
