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

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

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

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.

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


  • 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!
