The poem that came instead of a short story

I want to write a story
A good one, where laughter
Is in every line, and the end
Is just so surprising, but
All I can do is write this poem

Because writing is always
What wants to come out instead of
The thing I want to write, or…
Maybe I really want to write this
A poem filled with musings on life

Because a short story is easy
When this poem is out of the way
Or maybe something else will come then
A blog post, a chapter of my book
A little note to share on Instagram

I smile now, as the words flow out
And know that I am at service, always
To write what needs to be written,
To share what wants to heal and be healed
And to love each moment my fingers write
