because I must
because I love it
because I'm clever
because the world needs to hear me.
Because I want the world to hear me.
Yes. No? Maybe. Because.
Because I have known it since childhood
and it comes as naturally as breathing
Because I love it so much
need it so much
that I physically crave the smoothness of a blank page
and the weight of a pencil in my hand
Because out of everything I know
I know it better than the back of my hand
Because to me words are the most powerful
because I have something to say
tell the world
and this is the only way I know how.
I write because I must.
