Why do I write?
I write because I must.
There is no choice.
There only is and isn't.
The words are a part of me;
I cannot deny myself.
When I was first shown the beauty that words could create
I felt as though a piece of me
fell into place.
I knew that I had discovered something
It was when I had just turned thirteen,
barely having started my lifelong adventure,
I discovered poetry.
I have an English teacher to thank
for helping me find myself.
So, you see,
The words flow without provocation.
The ideas refuse to leave me alone
unless I express them.
The poetry I create is merely an extension of myself.
Allow me to introduce myself.
Hello, I am a writer.
And you are?
