Writing is something that you cherish throughout your years,
and look back upon later in your life.
It’s an easier way to express your feelings
and it just feels right.
When the words start flowing out of you,
everything comes naturally.
It’s something you can’t take for granted,
because it may someday save your life.
Like a suicide note that someone leaves,
telling their family that they’ll be alright.
Then hanging themselves in their closet,
in the silence of the night.
Like that song on the radio,
that makes you go into tears.
And then you go forgive someone,
that you’ve had a grudge with for years.
Like that verse in the bible,
that reminds you that you’re loved.
That there’s someone who cares for you,
in the giant kingdom above.
Like that note your boyfriend gave you,
telling you that he’s done.
When all you really thought
is that you finally found “the one”.
So next time you get a note,
whether from your family or a friend,
cherish that person’s writing
until your untimely end.
You never know if it’s their last day,
or if it’s actually yours,
so cherish every word you see,
especially if it isn’t yours.
