Why Do We Write?

We write to express who we are

To be that person who we are on the in but not on the out

To make our muted voices heard even when people dnt want to hear them

To connect with people

To relax and take your mind off everyday stress

To enter the confines of our mind to escape the real world

To figure out who we are when we really dont know

To be that great and famous writer

Writing could be that best friend who we can tell all our secrets too

The weapon we use instead of our fist

Writing can be our drug

Yet the best of medicine

Everyone's reason for writing is different

As long as our passion for writing is there

May it shine so bright that it put stars to shame
