I write to release all of the emotions I’ve picked up during the day,
I write to remember happy memories, and to make the bad ones fade away.
I write because I am in love. I write because I’m in pain…
I write because I have nothing to lose, and so very much to gain.
I write when my head is filled with fantasies, dreams and or goals,
I write because just like an actor, my mind takes on many roles.
I write my own songs, poems and sometimes silly little rants,
I write because I feel, I write because I can’t.
I write to show others like me that they are never alone,
I write to create another world that is simply my own.
I write because I am proud. I write because I’m ashamed…
I write when there’s a voice inside of me that can’t be tamed.
I write at three in the morning when I can’t fall asleep,
I write because it is far better than counting furry sheep.
I write because I always have something to say,
I write because it has made me into who I am today.
