Why I write.

I started to write because I couldn't:
there were no words before.  (It was awful,
what was unfolding on the TV screen.)

They came tumbling out and fell like bodies:
words of horror and shock and outrage.  They
landed on the page, bled the pain I felt.  

My opinions had never mattered.  I
kept them locked away, because no one was
interested in what I had to say,

until that dark day in September.  One
life was saved:  mine.  How could I not write?  I 
will let the words have their say, good or bad.
