Why do I write?

I write for many reasons:

To share an experience,

To vent my feelings,

To talk about subjects

Of which most people turn

A blind eye to.


Writing makes me feel alive,

Makes me feel as though I have

A voice that can be heard above

The noise.

It makes me happy,

It makes me sad.

It makes me angry,

And most of all, it makes me

Grateful to be alive.


Whether it’s an emotional poem,

A silly short story

Or a novel that bears

My very heart and soul,

Writing, for me,

Is the one thing I have

Control over.
