Why do I write?


I write to release,

I write to not feel.

I write to express feelings that I know are real.

I write when I'm confused,

I write when I'm alone,

I write when there's no one but myself at home.

I write to inspire.

I write to be free.

I write to all the children like me.

I write to change, I write to inspire.

I write to touch the hearts who ignite my fire.

I write to be known, I write to relate, I write so no one chooses the quick escape.

I write for you, I write for me, I write for all the children like me.
