For the love of the pen

Not for your applause.
Not for my name in lights.
Not for my ego to be stroked
But because words can be beautiful scraps
For making music out of silence
And silencing demons in my head-
Today is blog number one thousand.
A thousand times I doubted
And showed up against my better judgment,
A thousand times I wondered
If anyone would even care
And then decided that as long as I cared it was enough,
A thousand times I put my fleeting thoughts together on a page
The best way I knew how-
For no other reason
Than the love of the pen.
