Why I Write II

I write to write...to tell you the truth, that's a damn lie.
I write to express myself, to let my soul breathe a little.
I put love and memories into these things.
I call it, "My Way Out."
It's my ticket to give back to my community, but on top of all that it keeps me away from a gang...a life I never want to live.
