A Reason To Write

Written by: Emma Mantle

I give voice to thoughts hidden from sight
expressing my inner self and soul.
Paper and pen do not judge what I write
though my secrets take their toll.

Expressing my inner self and soul
I write so I can hear my heart.
Though my secrets take their toll
an inward journey I did start.

I write so I can hear my heart
others can listen as they choose.
An inward journey I did start
myself to decipher I muse.

Others can listen as they choose
in inspirations shadow I write.
Myself to decipher I muse
learning to treasure what's brought to light.

In inspirations shadow I write
unlock my cage of hopes and dreams.
Learning to treasure what's brought to light
with my fears in full view it seems.

Unlock my cage of hopes and dreams.
Paper and pen do not judge what I write.
With my fears in full view it seems
I give voice to thoughts hidden from sight.
