Why Write?

I write about the moments in life

That are too complex for the spoken word,

And I write to dissect every problem

That I can't bear to inflict upon a friend.

I write to express the misunderstood beauty

That few people have experienced.

By writing, I recognize the underrated elegance

Found within the people and

Objects downtrodden by a standard

Of beauty that will never be attained.

I write to feel the immediate comfort

Of making my thoughts concrete

And sharing them with the people

Who live while I write about the

Emotions and experiences that are

At once unique and universal.

And I write in the hopes

That I will affect at least one life

With my existence through the written word,

Giving hope to some and comfort to others.

Because as long as the written word exists,

You are never truly alone.
