I write because….
it’s the best tool i have for expressing myself in the world
because it helps me to heal
….and to remember and sometimes to forget
I write because i have something to say
and sometimes I write because I get paid to write
often i write because my voice won’t say the words that my hands so easily can
and because it is the place where i feel closest to god,
i write because i can get lost, and, sometimes, i can find myself amongst the words
i write because something inside of me, far bigger than me, won’t let me not write
i write to allow the part of me that must be heard, to be heard
if i couldn’t write….i sometimes feel i couldn’t breathe
Why do you write?
