Why I writeThe externalization


Why I write
The externalization of my internal fight
My words take flight
What I convey not always a delight
The emotions are real,
Flashing before your eyes
Masquerading in my desguise
Making you quake with the anticipation
You're holding onto my every word
Set me free, my lyrics a soaring bird
Making you contemplate, you gain incite
This is why I write,
Unshackled by the lyrics I recite
