I write to speak

To be heard

To live out my dreams


There’s no better way

To be understood

Than to sew my words like seams


I do it to grow

To learn and relearn

Sprout out branches, develop new leaves


I try to break through

The standards, the walls

To just let myself scream


Detail the river

Account the oceans

Scrawl out on paper the streams


Set the world straight

Typing line after line

Transforming she or he believes


I write to show them

that there’s so much more

Than anyone can see


I can be powerful

I have a light

To shine, to shimmer, to gleam


All I have to do

Is write
