Today's prompt is 'Do I have to do this?" or why do I write?

Why am I writing a poem a day for 31 days? Am I insane? Most people don't read poetry or even like it, so what's the point? My short answer is 'I have to.' My poetic answer is below.

A Poem

A poem
Is a song and
The music’s in my heart.
My soul must sing
A poem.

A poem
Guides my hand:
Words formed into art.
Such a beautiful thing:
A poem.

I love how you put this in the view of the poem and not the artist. It's the poems that make us explore ourselves.
