I Write

Tue, 06/25/2013 - 22:37 -- Remmy1

because I must

because I love it

because I'm clever

because the world needs to hear me.


Because I want the world to hear me.


Yes. No? Maybe.  Because.


Because I have known it since childhood

          and it comes as naturally as breathing


Because I love it so much

                   need it so much

     that I physically crave the smoothness of a blank page

         and the weight of a pencil in my hand


Because out of everything I know

       I know it better than the back of my hand


Because to me words are the most powerful

     because I have something to say



                                                          tell the world

and this is the only way I know how.


I write because I must.
