It's Who I Am

Location

                                                                      I write because I write.

It’s who I am.

I have loved rhymes and words since I was born.

Writing is how I express my feelings, my essence.

I write down everything.

Every burn, every joy, all become lessons learned.

It’s easier for me to make sense of this life when words are written on paper.

It’s my escape when the pain of reality is too real.

It’s how I apologize for all my wrongs.

When my mouth is speechless, writing is how I communicate.

It’s how I deliver my best prayers to God.

I write because I write.

I am a poet, and poetry lives within me.

It’s what I breathe.

Poetry is my life. It's the one and only thing that has ever truly made sense to me.
