Why I Write (Why Speak)


Spoken words are often too hard to get out

Why speak our feelings when we can write them,

record them for all the world to see.

To be experienced long after we have perished from this earth,

To leave behind something substantial like Bronte, Shakespeare, and Fitzgerald.

Show the future what the sun looked like dipping behind the Rocky Mountains,

And how it rose, bright and yellow over the crystal blue waters of the Atlantic.

So I ask you,

Why speak when you can write?
