My Reason to Write

Location

I write to empower; I write to impress

I write for myself, it's my way to express

Emotions and feelings, they pour out in words

Like waves crashing down, I want to be heard

These words are like music, fluid and loud

This page is my speaker, honest and proud

Love, happiness, anger, or pride

These words come from feelings bottled inside

Like colors emotions stand vibrant and clear

Positioned on this paper for all to hear

Why I write may not be understood

But to me it makes all the bad things seem good

For those who describe life in a poem

There's nothing to fear, we are never alone

I write to connect with others like me

Without self expression then where would we be?
