I don't write for a publication,

I don't write to win,

I don't write to compete,

I write so that I have something that is mine and no one else's,

I write so that I can feel something,

Feel the passion that I could never feel for another human being,

I write so that my brain does not implode upon itself,

Through lack of a vent for emotion,

I write because if I didn't,

You would have no way of telling if I had a heart or a soul,

I write so that speaking my mind,

Becomes labelled as art instead of impertinence,

I write so that I can ink my feelings onto a page,

And deny them all in a disclaimer,

To kid myself that I have never been hurt.

The End
