Why I Write

Fri, 06/28/2013 - 13:47 -- Monai

The world we live in today is like a big game of follow the leader

Everyone wants to portray the things that they seeon T.V.


Well I just want to be me

Just because the rapper in the video has money an cars

Doesn't mean thats why I want to reach for the stars

I make decisions based on my passion

No the cars, the papparazi and fashions

When I write a poem it's like a song

It has the perfect melody for my soul to sing along

One day I hope all these poems will become songs

Then I can create an album that journeys into a world where I perfectly belong

I write when I'm happy

I write when I'm sad 

I'll even vent with my pen and paper and write when I'm mad

It's a positive way to show my world through my eyes

People can see where my heart truely lies

Yes Im reaching for the fortune and fame 

But are reasons are not even close to being the same

I just want to share my talents with those who can relate

To see my words help express someones feelings
I just can't wait
