What Writing Did For Me

It's always been an outlet,
To help me deal with pain.
Had it not discovered me,
I would have gone insane.

It let me vent my feelings.
It helped me look inside.
It let me have emotions
I didn't have to hide.

I could put it all in words.
Release it, with a pen.
And If I wished, revisit it,
Every now and then.

If writing had not found me,
Who knows where I would be.
I never would've walked this path.
I just would not be me.
