Why do I write words?

My words won't feed a hungry child.
My words won't end wars.
My words don't house the homeless.
But, my words don't kill anyone.
And my words don't hurt anyone.

My words are free
Because no one wants to buy them

My words are free
Because they just float
Of of my mouth
With no one here
To catch them.

My words are scattered all over the place.

Some of my words are for poetry.
Some of my words are for groceries.
Some of my words have no where to go
Or, people to see.

Some of my words are senseless,
Some of my words are hopeless,
Some of my words are romantic,
Some of my words are frantic.
Which might make me a frantic romantic.

But, most of all,
Most of the time,
No one sees or feels
My words.

And on some days I wonder...

Just where are my words?
