Write until it rips your heart

And then write some more

Write until the dripping spout

Breaks and you must pour

Write about what heals your soul

Write about what hurts

Write about the best of days

Write about the worst

Write when you feel most alive

Write when you feel death

Write until your hands give out

Write ’til your last breath

Spill your thoughts in thick black ink

Live within these pages

Your body may decay

But your art will live for ages
