What can I do,

This is the best self therapy I ever knew,

No paying exorbitant fee’s,

No doctor telling me to get up off my knee’s…


Writing is best for me,

Writing is best for you,

Keeps me off the insanity crew,

Better is writing to speak out,

Than even getting a raunchy tattoo…


Writing is getting in touch with the inner self,

Writing is betting but better than gambling,

Writing makes one happy, not crappy,

Writing seems for me handed down from my pappy…


Writing is like eating,

Writing is like breathing,

Too start writing one does teething,

Writing takes away a feeling of self-defeating…

Fantastic! I'd like to frame this and hang it in my living room, or better yet print it on Tshirts I'd wear for a week (different colors!)
"Writing is like breathing" is the best quote this 2008! Thanks ED!!!

This appears to be a slight variation of a Dr. Suesse story..."I am a writer, a writer am I."

Nice writing, writing nicely, it is!

DIARHEA of the pen has no STENCH!


IF they ever develop 'SMELL-A-PUTER' we're in trouble, though!
