Why I Write?

It's who I am.
How you feel, how you love, what you stand for,
It's written in a symphony of words,
that explains what you look for,
how you explain yourself.
It shows the world what's bottled up,
and what you need to let go.
Why I write?
I write because it's who I am.
It opens my mind to expose,
my dreams, my wants, my wishes.
It speaks for who I am, what I feel,
who I love, and what I stand for.
That's why I write.
