Why I write

I write to be heard

To be read and understood

I write to be respected

To make my point and show my strength

I write to tell my story

To prevent myself from crumbling


I write because the words evade my lips

I write so they will hear without looking at my hips

I write because nobody will get dstracted

There is nothing about words on a screen, that can be found attractive


I write so you will listen to what I have to say

I would waste my breath, any other way
