I Write, Therefore I Am.

by Patrick Liew on May 5, 2014

Bare naked, lay I
Not hiding behind a shadow
My pen with its own might
Romance the paper like there’s no letting go.
My hands punch away
On these modern gadgetry
My thoughts bound for endless horizons
With high speed Internet connectivity.

I write, therefore I am
All these technology come to aid
When I pour out my life’s passions
In words that flood the gates
Writing drains my heart and soul
And fills it up, too.
The words I lose through my hands and tongue
Come back in forms of deep reflections
Experiences in life are like lamp posts that light
The path I lead for others
By my words, come abide
And learn nuggets of wisdom from life’s twists and turns.

The words I write expose the whole of me
Which I offer to you faithfully
Take me for what I am
All the rough edges around
I trust you love that fact about me
A diamond in the rough.

Some are led to judge
Based on my errors and mistakes
Here’s an honest disclaimer
Just like you, I still can use better days.
Still I find it refreshing
To keep a record of my days
Critical self-reflection
Leads to improving my ways.

These my sacred records
In blog posts, tweets, and even pins
May serve one day to help you keep
Away from life’s folly and fail
Read and learn so you may start
A guided journey to your own star
Reach it earnestly and in a more certain way
Because before you my record lays
Bare naked, honest and true.
Take me for my true colour and hue.

– Patrick Liew and an anonymous poet
