from the vault - a poem - "i want to write"

I dug around in my old poetry files, and found this . .

i want to write
something prophetic
and poetic
give jumbled thoughts
meaning and depth
to be heard
in the thousands of voices around me
and at the same
time my choices
to sink into the background
blending with the grey mush
i can’t write to be
sympathetic or
words really have no
meaning unless someone
reads them or hears them
can i write to feel
to be
to see
to know       that i belong?
