Why Wouldn't I?

keep going.
keep believing.
determine the poetry.
for value of heart.

be better than before.
be sorry.
listen closer.
and try harder.

catch the sun.
tuck it under my arm.
and save it just in case.
you give me another chance.

let the bellows be heard.
by a mouth made of fingers.
and a typewriter writ large.
with rust and dust.

why wouldn't I try.
and keep writing.
love and all.
in spite of losing.
