Write like your life depends on it!
Write like it’s a scream for help,
A last supper,
the only salvation in the midst of the deadliest sins.
Write like a slave in the race for freedom,
like a drowning woman in search of a helping hand.
Write like you really, really mean it!
Like not writing is the same as taking a final breath,
like a dying patient in search of the last possible cure.
Write like your dreams depend—no survive--
because of your ability to write a hope,
poem a wish,
story the most beautiful imagination.
Write as if in writing is a miracle,
a life saved,
a dream undeferred.
So write like you mean it,
like your life depends on it,
like in not writing
the eulogy for your funeral has begun.
So sista, brotha
Write on! Write on! Write on!
