To those who believe
That writing's a crime
That it's abnormal
A waste of time

To those who believe
That we aren't real humans
That we are so different
An alien, not normal men

To those who believe
That our lives are spent
In pens, and pens alone
All to our consent

And then those who believe
That writing is key
That it's the only way
To keep your sanity

Those who believe
That writing's a vital part
Are those who know
The veins of their very heart

This came to me randomly, honestly. I know it could use some work, so I'd appreciate healthy feedback. Thanks in advance!

The rhyming is great =) one thing i would suggest... since you're saying "to those..." what do you want to tell them? i think if you made it more obvious that the last half was answering to that and not continuing on with the list of who the poem is to, then it would have a more final ending. Hopefully that made sense because i honestly don't know =P I really like this poem though and all your other poems are fantastic!
