Why I Write

I write poetry. 

Poetry is emotion.

Poetry is honest.

Poetry is simple.

A place i can be myself.


I write poetry to be free.

To express myself in ways talking can't.

To understand more about myself.

To be who I want to be.

That's why I write poetry.


But all things aside,

Aside the emotion and honesty and trust.

I write poetry because it makes me happy.

A kind of happiness I can't find anywhere else.

A kind of happiness I find only in poetry.
