Why I Write

Tue, 08/13/2013 - 12:59 -- Imasha

I write

Because I am compelled to

Because of daydreams

held so long in my mind

that longed for more permanent expression

Because of night dreams

that burned in my mind

until I could get them on paper

Because of stories

painted in my mind

that refuse to be forgotten

Because of those in the stories

who deserve to be heard

Because I write

to live

and bring life to those

who cannot speak for themselves
