To write is to be free

Fri, 05/31/2013 - 19:36 -- NBoston

The freedom to fly across the keys,
to describe a thought
to express a feeling,

These actions are recent luxuries
once limited and criminalized;

The freedom to go where none other has gone
to draw a conclusion
to define ones mind,

Writing is a privilege
that no one should deny;

The freedom to say what has never been said
to break down the limits
to explore what is beyond,

I strive to create
I strive to convey,

My thoughts and dreams
In lines of black and white,

To write, to me,
Is the right to be free.
