Why do I write?

Why do I write?

As I am penning down my thoughts,

I let myself go,

Drowning in my own reverie of words,

I let my soul guide the way through,

Writing down the unfulfilled fantasies,

The broken dreams, the secret hopes and longing,

Ah I let my soul show you pieces of me,

Telling you a story that was never told,

Writing down the unspoken words,

Writing gives me freedom,

It felt like my soul has been trapped inside for far too long,

Unbound myself from my own purgatory,

Slowly I feel a little bit alive,

It gives me courage, strength and above all it saves me from myself,

This is why I write.
