imageI WRITE…
Because I have a story to tell
A true story of who I’am
A story that is constantly changing
A story that is real
A story that you might see and relate to
A story that makes you realize, you too, are like me
A story that may make you smile
A story that may get you thinking

I WRITE…
Because I have to
This is how I express myself
This is how I release who I’am to the world
This is the one thing that keeps me sane
This is how I convey my message to you
This is my passion

I WRITE…
Because I have a craving to inspire
I have a need to motivate
I have a desire to spread peace
I desperately want to see a better world
I want to paint this world in kindness with my words

I WRITE…
Because my words are destined to reach the eyes of someone else
This someone else that is hurting, that is tired of crying, that feels like a failure
This someone who is a replica of who I was
This someone who needs to know that it is going to be okay
Because I’am okay.

I WRITE…
Because I want my children to read my journey
I want my children to see their childhood within my writing
I want my children to know what life was through my words
I want my children to know I had a passion and I wasn’t afraid to share it with the world
I want my children to know they taught me more than I could ever teach them

  1. Yes!! Me too! Something usually inspires me and I can hear the words in my mind of what will be written. I usually harbor it, thinking about it as I was the dishes or cook dinner until it manifests into a complete body of work. I then write it in my journal until I am ready to type it, where I will continue to modify it. I enjoyed your poem! Great work!
