Why do you write?

A question such as this was once asked to me,
I simply said it made me free.

The questioner said, "Well, so does reading!"
to which I respond, "But I have a greater needing."

"And that would be?" the questioner asked.
"To create a freedom that will ever-last."

He frowned and stated, "I don't think there are many like you."
I smiled and recited a short Haiku.

"All around the both of us,
A poet spins a tale of freedom,
To numb the pain of normal."
